RUGA suspension: Be vigilant, FG is still doing underground plans, CAN warns by References: 4:46pm On Jul 07
Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, this weeked cautioned the people of the Southern part of the country to remain vigilant even with the suspension of the controversial RUGA settlement for Fulani herdsmen.

The secretary of CAN in the 17 Southern States, Dr. Joseph Ajujungwa made this warning in a statement issued to pressmen.

Ajujungwa, who said the suspension of the programme by President Muhammadu Buhari may not be its end, said there was every indication “though it is claimed that it has been suspended, the underground work is still going on.” He called on every Southerner “to be watchful”, stressing that “even as we pray, we don’t need to keep quiet; they are experts in underground work.”

He added that “we do not have land to give to anybody as a grazing field or colony and we call on the South East governors to maintain their stand that they do not have such a place. Do you know what it means to give 10 hectares of land to herdsmen? We say no to that.

“As CAN, we will preach it from our pulpit, every Imam should peach from the mosque and the traditionalists should stand against it; nobody should relent; no land should be given; any traditional ruler that does that should be dethroned.

"In the North, we have largest hectares of land, very vast that nobody is occupying. Why are they not building the ranches, Ruga of whatever there? They can come here, take grass and go, and we buy cow in exchange, just like the governors said. We do not have such mass land required.”

“We are also calling on the Federal Government to be mindful of what they are doing because cattle rearing is a private farming business. Why should the government support individual cattle farmers against other farmers?” On the threat and ultimatum issued by a coalition of Northern Youths, Ajujungwa said “they should understand that nobody has the monopoly of violence. As they are planning to attack, others are planning to defend themselves and we cannot run away for them.

“CAN is calling on all Christians, all law abiding citizens of the Southern Nigeria to please watch and pray. Watch means that you must open your eyes to see what is going on and therefore pray; do not relent.

“Anybody that is coming to buy land now, in the name of business, factory, and what have you, let us be cautious in dealing with the person, because their plot is to turn such into colony”, the statement reads.

Me?

Am already planting my grasses, selling to highest bidder in the north as grasses are my own resources on my ancestral land.

The era of free grazing is drawing to an end.

Is it by force? The die hard attitude of the FG to implement this RUGA is starting to make me believe the FG have a hidden agenda. I mean the states concern say they're not intersted, why just why can't the FG let it go?

If you know what you are doing, you guys won't be saying this. Check out the objectives of CAN as a body, you will understand better. You guys mistake CAN for a church. It is an "association" just like you have Nigeria medical Association, Nigeria Bar Association etc and it is part of CANs responsibilities to watchout for Christians in Nigeria, even if it means opposing political decisions that are harmful to the welfare of Christians

You just think CAN is a church or head of churches in Nigeria and therefore should stay out of politics. If it's Muric that's talking now, you won't mention a word about political party.

There are churches who aren't even members of CAN.

Let's be guided please. CAN is an association and they have the right to meddle in political, social and religious issues relating to christians.

Be Vigilant, Buhari has changed RUGA to National

When I read on nairaland about how some people are trying to be politically correct for some stupid reason which I don't even know of, I just laugh.... Even a die-hard Buhari supporter like sarrki is worried about his farm in Taraba. If you know what they are planning for the whole South, you won't be coming on nairaland to write rubbish from your father's house.
