RUGA: Ondo State Is Only Interested In Cattle Ranches - Governor Akeredolu by OndoFirstBorn(m): 1:53pm On Jul 02, 2019
Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has reacted to the proposed RUGA Settlement in the State.


He said Ondo State is only interested in ranches. He stressed that the state has already allocated some lands in two different locations for ranches where one of the site can accommodate over 5,000 cows.

The governor reacted on twitter after he was asked by a twitter user to publicly give his stance on the RUGA Settlement initiative after several states in the South-West have rejected it.

In his words, Governor Akeredolu said; "Our stance on the #RugaSettlements debate is clear. Ondo is only interested in ranches. We have 2 large ranches existing in Akunnu & Auga. Auga can accommodate 5000 cows. A key difference here is that we have no preference for who manages the cattle. The ranch owners decide."

" The primary reason for #RugaSettlements although understandable does not truly factor the interests of every State. We have a youth unemployment crisis our ranches can address. Ondo State must prioritize agriculture due to the arable nature of our land."

The governor implored the Federal Government to revisit the proposed RUGA Settlement after it has been rejected by several states.

" A lot of our land is already earmarked for forest reserves. The FG must understand why we need to be strategic in our decision making. We implore the FG to revisit the proposal based on feedback from the different States & act accordingly."

These are governors with sense.

Ekiti and Ondo has taken their stand.

East has done same, most South south also, waiting for Obaseki to say something or Eziza go remove him head.

Allocate land for ranches managed by the state ministry of Agriculture. Buy a space and take care of your cows, buy grasses from the indigenes and they will inturn buy your cows.

Ranchers will pay taxes and must not allow their cows to stray, if it does they get arrested and a fine of 1million Naira is paid per head.

All these ruga by force occupying of our lands by foreigners is a recipe for genocide.

The conspiracy theories about ruga aka cattle colonies being forced on states were always dumb. Everyone knows the land use act makes that impossible. By the looks of things the ruga will be northern project.

There's still other issues to worry about like how its being funded. How much does end user pay in terms of leases and fees. Will beef and pork be taken off inport ban list afterwards?

Cows only wonder off ranch if gate is left open. All you need is some barbwire fences to keep them in. It would also keep some most people out.

That is a good one from the Gov.

This is how it is done in saner climes.

Ipob mention anyone from your tribe that is brave enough to fight till the end.

Ojukwu and Cownu ran away when their people needed them the most.

Adekunle Fajuiyi chose to die with his guest Ironsi

Woke Soyinka was jailed coz of your stupid Biafra

Colonel Banjo fought on the side of Biafrans before Ojukwu took his life

Nadeco fought the military to a standstill and got Yoruba presidency in the end.

We all know of Gani Fawehinmi and other Yoruba human rights lawyers.

Name one person in your tribe that is brave as the Yorubas. What ya’ll don’t underestand is that being brave has to do with brain also, which is evidently lacking in your DNA.

A governor proposed what he wants for his people and you are here mentioning braveness. What you guys fail to understand is that your enemy should not be our enemy.

You might hate the northerners for whatever sake, but because you hate them does not mean that we have to also hate them.

Of course RUGA is a No in Yoruba land based on popular opinion but that dosen’t stop the fact that a better alternative may evolve such that better consultation will be in place to make ranching better. It may be owned by locals and leased out to the fulanis or other cow owners.

It's a fat lie. Ondo state and the entire SW is open for the establishment of Ruga colonies. We love Fulanis and their cattle.
