|Ruga: South East Govs Strike Deal With Herdsmen by Ebullience(m): 10:30pm On Jun 30, 2019|
South East Governors have reached an agreement with Miyetti Allah following the Federal Government’s proposal for the establishment of Ruga settlements in some states.
The South East Governors Forum said the proposed deal was struck with members of the Miyetti Allah as a panacea to achieving lasting peace among farmers and herdsmen.
Chairman of the South East Governors Forum and Governor of Ebonyi State, Chief David Umahi, said there was no plan for any Ruga settlement in any part of South East and South South, rather, the zones can make a very good business with the sale of grasses to the herdsmen in exchange for meat.
Umahi, spoke through his Chief Press Secretary, Emmanuel Uzor, noting that there would be no part of the South East that will be given out for the establishment of Ruga.
He noted the zone is purely agrarian with limited landmass for farming and therefore cannot accommodate Ruga.
Umahi, according to the statement, said the zone actually proposed a deal with MACBAN to take their cattle to the Northern parts where the grazing reserve was established long time ago and rely completely on the grasses grown in the South for feeding of their cattle.
It would be recalled that the Ebonyi Governor was appointed Chairman Technical Committee on Farmers and Herdsmen clash carved from the Federal Economic Council under the chairmanship of the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.
The governor had made a recommendation for revamping of the already existing grazing reserve in various parts of the North to enable farmers to have unhindered access to their farmlands while herdsmen rely solely on proceeds from the farmers.
“The way it works is that the herdsmen will bring down their cows to the South East and sell us as meat while they will load the grasses which are grown here in the same trailer with which they transported their cows to feed their cattle in those grazing reserve which should be made comfortable for them.”
The statement also quoted Umahi as saying that with this proposed deal, herdsmen are expected to embrace anti-open grazing by returning to the ranches in the north and do their business on the trade-by-barter basis of selling cows to the south and buying grass to feed their cows in the north.

Trade by batter, bring your cow and get truck load of grass in return.
