Tension!!! Fulani Chieftain Orders Buhari To Punish Any Governor That Rejects The RUGA Initiative
Chairman of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, Nasarawa State Chapter, Alhaji Muhammad Huseni, has said that any Governor who refuses to accept the Federal Government’s plan to build RUGA settlements for Fulanis in their States, “wants crisis to continue”.
Huseni stated this in an interview with Sunday Tribune, in Lafia, the Nasarawa State capital, stressing that, the RUGA project across the 36 States of the Federation will curb incessant Farmers/Herders crisis.
He urged Stakeholders across the country to join other Governors, by keying into the programme, for a lasting solution to the lingering crisis in their States.
“Any Governor that does not want RUGA settlement in his State, is a lover of crisis and does not want Farmers-Herders clashes to end in Nigeria. Such Governors will like war to continue, in order to be collecting security votes from FG.
“But we are suggesting to the Federal Government, to penalise any Governor who is not ready for the RUGA project in his State”, he stated.
According to the Chairman, the Fulanis in Nasarawa State, are fully prepared and in support of the government’s plan, pleading with other tribes who have negative impressions about the Scheme, to have a change of mind.
