RUGA: Some South East Govs already promised to donate land for the project- PDP BOT Chair: Politics : Nigerialog.com - Nigeria's Premier Online Forum
“I am not in APC, I am a PDP chieftain. But when we talk of development and security, we should leave anything about politics, religion and tribe.“Whoever is ruling in Nigeria, if he brings any programme that will do away with insecurity, killings and take care of the welfare of the people, I will go by that. My politics is not do-or-die and I play politics without bitterness.“That is why we, Fulani, commend the Federal Government for introducing the RUGA project in the country.“I and our tribe (Fulani) had embraced the programme. RUGA project includes the provision of hospitals, schools, water supply and electricity, among other facilities, which will have direct bearing on the lives of the herders.“Apart from that, it will also tackle incessant farmers/herdsmen conflicts as well as boost food security in the country,” he said.
“So, I am calling on southerners, the Igbos, the Yorubas, among others, to embrace it, even though the project is not compulsory.“The project will keep the herdsmen one, safe and will improve on their welfare as some states in the South East have already promised to donate land for the project.’’
