Herdsmen under the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has reacted to the suspension of Rural Grazing Areas (RUGA) settlement initiative across the nation.

The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari had suggested and began the project nationwide with stakeholders not carried along. He said the initiative will bring a permanent end to herders and farmers clashes across Nigeria.

Although it is said to be optional for interested states, the implementation of the projects in some states that rejected it fuelled speculations that the government was being economical with the truth.

Those who rejected the move accused the federal government of spreading land grabbing for the benefit of the Fulani tribe.

Reacting to the suspension of the project, Miyetti Allah said the move was a blessing to them because they do not need it.

The president of the umbrella body of herdsmen in the country, Abdullahi Bodejo, said his group was not consulted before the implementation of the initiative as it was politically driven.

“We don’t need Ruga settlements. Every Fulani man in Nigeria has a Ruga. The entire scheme is political because even the Fulani leaders and traditional rulers were not consulted,” Mr Bodejo was quoted by Leadership newspaper as saying.

“What we need is a return to our grazing areas. Facilities should be provided in them so that the herders can graze their cattle because the Ruga issue is political and does not help the Fulanis in the country.

“We support him (the president) because the programme was not helpful to us. How do you start a programme that a Fulani man with over 500 cows is not aware of?” he queried.

The Miyetti Allah helmsman said the Ruga project created distrust between herders in the south and their host communities who drove some of them away from their domain.

“The Fulanis in the southern part of the country were living peacefully with their neighbours for many years but when this issue of Ruga started, many of them were chased out. There was distrust. That is not good. All the traditional rulers in the North and we the leaders of the Fulanis were not aware of the Ruga programme and we were not consulted. Anything that will make our cows to be destroyed is not good and should not be supported,” Bodejo added.

Meanwhile, Afenifere and Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the two socio-cultural groups in the south that rejected the initiative, has commended the incumbent administration for halting the projects.

When a child demands for something and doesn't get it, he'll turn around and say he doesn't even need it self. If you didn't need it why we're you asking for it in the first place?

This people are really not serious.
What is the meaning of '' government shld help us return to our grazing areas and also help in providing social amenities there''.
Like some people rightly said, these Buhari people are slowly coming up with this nonsense from another angle.
If i may ask where do they have grazing areas down South?
For all those that voted Apc, have you seen what is happening?
There are so many pressing issues in the country, it is herdmen affairs that is so important.

This is exactly what we have been saying on this matter for a fortnight now.

This is nothing but a cheap publicity from the animal kingdom.


They said that to make it appear as if the President had a mind of his own and was acting independent of them.


It is still a victory for Nigerian people.

sad As a born again Christian who is meant to speak the truth at all times, i think we Christians cum southerners has overblown the good intentions of president Buhari on this issue of Ruga settlement. We complain of how Fulani herdsmen are destroying our farms and killing people without facts, yet we we reject a program meant to isolate cattle herders in a confined location nationwide. Before we blab further, let us remember that the Fulanis are Nigerians like us and the Nigerian constitution guarantees them freedom of movement and doing business nationwide. If an igbo man can have multiple shops in Ladipo, Alaba, kano and other places, why can't we live peacefully with the Fulanis like we tolerated the igbos who are the most traveled tribe in Nigeria I hope we Christians have a rethink about this so we can have lasting peace sad

Why will they need it when the RUGA will prohibit them from rooming around. A project that would have help put a check to who operate cattle farming in Nigeria yet many don't want it. Very soon cattle will be going house to house to eat.

See how so much energy, time and resources are being channeled into discussions about cows and how to annex people's lands nationwide while the economy is still in shambles just like how it was crashed in 2015 thru govts ineptitude and misplaced priorities.
As soon as the economy enters recession again, you with hear them blame "looters" as usual.

You should learn the art of reading between the lines.

Miyetti said they did not need any Ruga.

Why?

Did they rugarize Agatu with any laws?

No!

They took it by force

They are telling you that they will continue their jihad on full throttle.
