Ruga: Ooni Of Ife, Wole Soyinka Tell Nigerians To Defend Their Ancestral Lands by skypper: 9:28am On Jul 08
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, and Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, have jointly called on Nigerians to defend their ancestral home lands against the Federal Government proposed RUGA cattle settlements.
This was made known in a communiqué issued yesterday to highlight details of a meeting between the monarch and Novel Laureate at his (Soyinka’s) home in Idi-Aba, Abeokuta, Ogun State.

The meeting was centred on the state of the nation.

Oba Ogunwusi and Soyinka, in the communiqué, said their call on Nigerians to defend themselves became crucial as the Coalition of Northern Groups gave a 30-day ultimatum to the Federal Government to pass the Ruga project for Fulani herders despite being suspended after many Nigerians went against it.

The report read: “In this regard, the recent ultimatum delivered by a sectarian order to the President of this nation to set up the so-called Ruga cattle settlements across the entire nation within a stipulated time, despite the national outcry, should be acknowledged as an entitlement under the bounty of freedom of expression.

“In return, we exercise ours and call upon Nigerian nationals across state demarcations to defend the sanctity of their ancestral lands. This birthright has never been annulled, not even under colonial occupation.

“Among such issues of urgent import are the ongoing insurrectional movements that derive from religious fanaticism and intolerance, exemplified by Boko Haram and allied tendencies, as well as aspects of commercial enterprise.
“In which some groups consider themselves especially privileged, singular, and above the laws and entitlements that are binding on other sectors of commercial and industrial undertaking. We have in mind destructive forms of social transactions that characterise groups such as nomadic cattle herdsmen, and their umbrella groupings in the nature of Myetti Allah.

“We confess ourselves increasingly distressed and appalled, that the hitherto harmonious cohabitation, even routine collaboration, among the productive arms of society that Nigerians have taken for granted even from pre-colonial times, have deteriorated to unprecedented levels of barbarity, contempt for human lives and a defiant trampling on the civic entitlements of other productive sectors such as farmers, the providers of both food and cash crops.

“This abhorrent, yet consistent pattern of sectarian, and homicidal arrogance is obviously not merely counter-productive but inhuman, criminal and divisive.

“We consider it a primary imperative of national existence that the constitutive parts of the nation take steps to preserve and enhance their distinct cultural identities, including tested and relevant pre-colonial values, their spiritual apprehension of phenomena and worship, all without detriment to the principles and ideals of mutual co-existence.
“To this end, we undertake to create state-of-the-art ethnic museums for our people both at home and in the Diaspora, where present and future generations can access their histories and cultures vividly, as living expressions of their very humanity, not simply as relics of eras vanished forever or irrelevant to the present,” the communiqué added.

It's their land and it's their right to do what they wish with it.

They should also not stop the people who wish to give land.

I have 3 questions for the yoruba muslims and tinubu..
1- what is your say on the ruga settlements proposed by the federal government
2- are you still going to lick your fulani masters ass on this issue
3- why is tinubu mute on such a delicate issue..
Or is he planning on selling his territory to his fulani master because of his dirty presidential ambition..

I don't know why I have the feeling that Nigeria will soon fight another civil war soon. Just because of this Buhari who believe his Fulani has the right to kill people.

All talk, no action. Isn't it the same Ooni that will be quick in rushing down to Aso rock for needless events, yet unable to face Pres. Buhari who's pushing RUGA? or the Prof. that'll will smile at President Buhari at fuctions?

It is time we stop celebrating mediocre leadership in any guise.

In the first place, FG supposed to prosecute this radical northern group, for every action there will be an equal and opposite reaction, since those northern groups are allowed to give meaningless ultimatum after the fg suspended the ruga stuff, then they should be expecting this.

Buhari is a religious bigot and religious extremist, that's why most Nigerian Muslims love and prefer him to Atiku, even the liberal Muslims too.
the Fulani Jihadists killing people are not really Nigerians but they collude with the Nigerian Fulani to carryout all these atrocities, they want to conquer more land/territory and extend the caliphate. Buhari has another agenda and don't care about Nigeria.
It's not really the herdsmen that carryout the killings, the Fulani herdsmen have a military wing which is also under Miyetti-Allah, its the jihadist military/militants that slaughter people not the herdsmen that carry cows around, this has been going on for centuries and that's how the Fulanis Lord over the North.
They will go to village and kill the indigenous people, sack the community people then import news Fulanis who are not even Nigerians to take over the community and nothing will happen, they have the back of most powerful politicians.

Buhari will be pretending as if he is helpless and don't know what to do, he will blame the killings on politicians, Gadafi, Malians, foreigners and the same time asks Nigerians to surrender their land to the killers for peace to reign.
more than 90% of the victims are minority Christians

BUHARI IS 100% INVOLVED IN THE KILLINGS.

just watch this video and understand it a little
