RUGA: Association Of Pig Farmers Writes Buhari, Demand “pig Colony” by MediaGuru36: 11:54pm On Jul 07
A group, the Nigeria Association of Yoruba Pig Farmers’ (NAYPF), has written President Muhammadu Buhari demanding the establishment of “pig colony” in Northern parts of the country, Igbere TV reports.

This comes on the heels of federal government's move to establish RUGA cattle colony for Fulani herdsmen across the country.

Although the presidency has since suspended the programme following public outcry, insinuations are, however, rife that the project may soon be reintroduced in another form.

In a statement issued to Igbere TV by NAYPF’s National President, Rev Bunmi Thomas, he said the plan is aimed at expanding the pork business and growing the economy.

According to him, the initiative, once implemented, will help to “strengthen the unity and economy base of Nigeria”, thereby leading to more employment opportunities.

The NAYPF boss hinted that a team of experts have been contracted from China to help establish a Pork Oil Factory in Abuja, for global exports from Nigeria to other countries.

Full Statement,

“The Nigeria Association Of Yoruba Pig Farmers (NAYPF) in view of its expanding pig business and with effort to increase pork meat to beef up protein in Nigeria, humbly demand from Mr. President the Presidential support to create for the NAYPF 10 hectares of land space each in all the 19 Northern States for our proposed PIG COLONY where in Yoruba Farmers who engage in Pig Farming can settle for the rearing of their pigs in a modern piggery system to be coordinated by China Farmers.

“This request is very important as it will engage many youths across various tribes who will be employed in this farming project to inter-marry and inter-commerce which will consequently strengthen the unity and economy base of Nigeria.

“Funds for this project has been sourced and are readily available from voluntary donations from members and good will Nigerians.

“Additionally Mr President, we the members of the NIGERIA ASSOCIATION OF YORUBA PIG FARMERS (NAYPF) have contracted the service of a Chinese firm YUNGSHAIN AGROPETS to the tune of N23 Billion for the establishment of a Pork Oil Company factory in Abuja where most of the pork will be used for oil production and export same to improve our economy.

“Mr President I have the pleasure to inform you likewise that the association is concluding plans to meet you to shed more lights on any grey areas in this letter (if invited to do so).

“We look forward to your prompt response and the attention of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture in this respect.”

Pig colony in the north will help improve the economy in line with president Buhari's agro policies. Nice one from the proactive pig farmers.

Am not in support of this.

Yorubas and fulanis should sort themselves out amicably because they have been living together since 1840.

Firstly, comparing pigs to cows is an erroneous comparison. Cows are eating by virtually everybody in the country. I do not know any tribe that doesn't eat beef. Rather, all other meat sources only supplement beef.

Secondly, it's a simple issue. Fulanis should take their cattle to the north and let's see who will lose more. Youruba man that can't even manage a dozen goats, how will he get meat for his wedding, naming and other ceremonies.

Thirdly, cattle is reared and grazed but pigs are confined. Until pigs are reared like cattle, there's no need for a 'puga' scheme.

Fourthly, ruga created to solve a societal nuisance. Meaning that it was born out of necessity. Farmers and cattle owners are struggling for scare resources - green pasture and land - but this isn't the case with piggery.

In summary, we should all try to be objective and realistic. A good and peaceful Nigeria will benefit us all. Let's not join hands with trouble makers and agents of anarchy.

I rest my case.

Very good. We want pig colonies and pig settlements in every northern state and the pig farmers must be armed by the government with Ak47s, armored tanks, mortar bombs, gun trucks and RPGs, just like they did to the herdsmen. Let us all be crazy together. God punish devil.

If you rear Goats and Sheep please gather here.

We too must send a protest letter to Mr. President to have our own share of Ruga. Buhari never see anything yet undecided

You can't be leader of a multi- cultural ethnic group as Nigeria, and prove to be shamelessly inclined and firmly supportive of the one you belong - "Mr. I belong to no one", lol.

The ethnic and religious proclivity of Buhari has eroded whatever good qualities he thinks he has. He's the worst president Nigeria has ever produced. Little did he know that if he tries anyhow, he will see anyhow! Last last we will push him back to Sudan where he comes from. Nonsense and stupidity embarassed
