Northern groups give FG, governors 30-day ultimatum to reverse suspension of Ruga [Video]

A coalition of northern groups has issued a 30-day ultimatum to governors who are opposed to the planned RUGA settlement programme to reconsider their decisions.

WuzupNaija reports that the Federal Government on Wednesday suspended the planned Ruga settlement programme following outrage and criticism from some State Governors and other Nigerians.

Speaking at a press briefing, the spokesperson of the group, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, said the debate to accept or not to accept the programme is already causing disaffection for Fulani Herdsmen.

He said:

“While we warn all state governments that stand against the implementation of the Ruga Initiative to desist and give peace a chance.

“We place President Buhari and the Federal Government on notice that they must completely stop this raging madness within 30-days beginning from today, Wednesday.”
