Former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has advised Fulani herdsmen on the best location to practice RUGA.
RUGA – Rural Grazing Area, an initiative of the Federal Government, aimed at setting up settlements for cattle rearers in different locations in Nigeria to help curb the incessant farmer-herders crisis.
The initiative had since been suspended following the backlash it met.
Most occupant of the southern part of Nigeria are against given up their lands for the programme, arguing cattle rearing was a private business and as such, the herders should acquire such spaces, rather than been handed to them.
Chief Fani-Kayode was reacting to the controversial initiative once again after it emerged that the Governor of Kebbi state, Atiku Bagudu called it “an idea of British colonialists.”
FFK advised in a Tuesday twitter post that, since it was an idea from the colonial masters from Britain, RUGA should be taken to the European country.

“Ruga is not Fulani but an idea of British colonialists” — Gov. Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi state.
Then take your accursed cows to BREXIT Britain and do your RUGA there!
