Bishop Simeon Borokini Rejects RUGA In South West by Elchicolo: 10:22am On Jul 08
The Anglican Bishop of Akure Diocese, Rt. Rev’d Simeon Borokini, has urged South-West governors to discard the controversial plan by the Federal Government to establish RUGA Settlements.

Borokini gave the warning during the first session of the Diocese’s 13th synod at St. Luke’s Anglican Church, Akure, yesterday.

According to Borokini, any South-West governor who offers the people’s land for the RUGA project would have himself to blame.

DAILY POST recalls that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government had announced the indefinite suspension of the RUGA project on the grounds of inconsistency with the National Livestock Transformation Plan.

Reacting, the Anglican Bishop said: “I am not in support of the suspension, I am advocating that it should be abolished.

“If they want to practise it, let them practise it in the northern part not in the South-West. I am not comfortable with that word, suspension. It should be abolished.

“If they want to practise it in Adamawa, Kano and other northern states, they should go ahead, but I won’t support practising it in the South West.

“Why should they give an expanse of land from our community to strangers? And we don’t know what they have in mind; they may have hidden agenda, which I don’t support.

“Why should they give preference to a particular tribe and a particular trade? Cattle rearing is a trade, and we have some of our farmers who are poultry keepers; why don’t they encourage them?

“We have some of our farmers also, they rear sheep and goats, why don’t they encourage them? Why is it only people rearing cows that are to be encouraged? What is special?”

I don't think issues of "One Nigeria" should come here. Niger State alone can occupy all cattles they need lands for.

This RUGA stuff has some underlying things attached. I'm just not comfortable.

Buhari APC dare not try it, if the Southwest APC don't want Buhari to pour sand inside their garri, they better reject RUGA, otherwise come 2023, APC will lose all states in the Southwest, what happened in Oyo state will be child's play. Even Lagos, we will vote APC out. Tinubu camp better not let Buhari destroy the ACN political empire they labored for a quarter century to build. Seriously, this RUGA matter will destroy APC politically. After killer herdsmen killed thousands of innocent people in their communities, including farmers, destroying their homes and lands, and then you want to give these same people lands in the same places? Who does that? For Buhari to even consider such in the first place shows how insensitive he his to the families and relatives of those thousands murdered in cold blood. I officially rescind my support for Buhari. I can't support anyone that supports or considers establishing RUGA.

Look at them!

Their belly has taken over their senses.

When COZA came up, You hardly see them coming up with statements, even though it was a direct insult to the house of God.



And when its about RUGA, they all trying to be relevant.

RUGA has been suspended. They should stop making noise out of nothing.

Political brethren's

Someday the westerners would realize they made a terrible mistake voting this tyrant again. For now, I'd just enjoy the drama as it unveils.

Is funny how the people that said the South East can't benefit from the government they didn't vote for... Are now trying to force RUGA on them. It just shows you that they have a hidden agenda on this matter.

The north don’t have a choice than to backdown, the Southwest already gave their verdict that no RUGA in our land.

This is what I keep telling people, if the SW can disagree with the North, then the north got no choice than to succumb. We will destroy them with the media not with propaganda tho but with logical reasoning.

This is also an eye opener for 2023, any attempt by the north to bring forth a candidate will be very crazy in Nigeria politics coz a united south spells doom for Northern dominance. The north also knows this.

Relax your mind bishop. No one is giving out land for anyone/anything. Politics is politics, our home and brethrens are our home and brethren. So cool off your mind.

Apart from Ooni, no single Yoruba Oba has talked about this Ruga thing.

This is confirmation that they've been promised oil lifting licence to parcel their land for fulani colonies.
