Tinubu Among Promoters Of Ruga – Odumakin by abeyaktech: 7:33pm On Jul 08
Eniola Akinkuotu, Abuja

Afenifere chieftain, Yinka Odumakin, says All Progressives Congress chieftain, Bola Tinubu, is one of the promoters of the Ruga initiative which seeks to give free land to herdsmen for cattle grazing and other forms of animal husbandry.

Odumakin drew the attention of Nigerians to Tinubu’s speech at a national summit on conflict resolution organised by The Nation and TV Continental with the theme, ‘Towards an Enduring Peace.’

He noted that at the event which held at the Nigerian Air Force Centre, Abuja on October 8, 2018, Tinubu said, “The government must help herders gradually shift from their traditional nomadic existence to a more static lifestyle. We have to face the reality that modernity is making the nomadic way counterproductive and inefficient.

“Unoccupied, isolated land can quickly be turned into grazing areas in the affected states. In the long run, this will enable herders to better maintain their livestock and thus their own livelihood.”

Speaking with our correspondent during an interview on Monday, the Afenifere spokesman said it was for this reason that Tinubu could not join other prominent Yoruba leaders in rejecting the Ruga programme.
Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka; the Aare Oona Kakanfo, Otunba Gani Adams, the Ooni of Ife, Enitan Ogunwusi; and other prominent Nigerians have all condemned the scheme.
Odumakin said, “It would be a waste of time to expect Tinubu to say anything on the Ruga matter. Don’t forget that in 2018, it was reported in The PUNCH that he said all unused lands should be given to herdsmen for grazing. I spoke up then but he lambasted me.

“What we are witnessing today is a manifestation of what he said. So, how can he come out today to oppose Ruga? He advocated Ruga.

“To expect Asiwaju to speak against Ruga is like expecting a shadow to shed tears. It will never happen.”

The Afenifere spokesman also noted that the Ruga initiative and the National Livestock Development Plan being handled by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo were not different from each other as claimed by President Muhammadu Buhari’s Spokesman, Garba Shehu.

Efforts to get a reaction from Tinubu proved abortive as his Spokesman, Tunde Rahman, did not respond to a text message sent to his phone.

Apart from his political affiliations which he's even likely to end up like every other Yoruba political leader (Abiola and Co), religion is playing it's own big role here too..

No Yoruba Muslim man or woman has condemned Ruga uptill today..(Show me one and I will Show you you a pregnant Virgin)

If not for Yoruba Christians that are speaking out against this Islimization Ruga, execution of Ruga would have taken place in SW long time ago.
As for those that are calling for southern unity, have it at the back of your mind that with Yoruba Muslims you are just chasing a shadow, take it or leave it.
Some of us Christian Yorubas still have a lot of work to do because if we remain docile which is what we are known for, trust me we will sleep one day and wake up at the caliphate .

These people are impediment to our progress and they are ready to do everything humanly possible to please the caliphate because they have chosen to place religion ahead of everything..
It's a pity

As a wealthy, suffersticated and politically savvy godfather, Alhaji Jagaban Bola Ahmed Tinubu should show us good example by donating his entire village land to the RUGA settlement project, in addition to donating his properties in Lagos.

No Yoruba Muslim will openly reject Ruga in the south west...


Tinubu is the one being used by the caliphate to advance fulanization in the South west

The whole of South West is suitable for Ruga anyway

I wish them good luck

See as the ignorant and unintelligent can't read and comprehend PDP bingo turn Asiwaju's comment into RUGA.


Shebi RUGA was suggested for all the states in Nigeria and not just the affected areas?

Obviously, Asiwaju's position is the same position ipobs and other rejectors are suggesting, that RUGA should be limited to the affected states in the North.

These Tinubu obsessed clowns are obviously confused, mentally disturbed and politically traumatized..


Dod Bless Asiwaju of Nigeria.

How does the above advice translate to promoting RUGA? Odumakin is gradually going insane and it is really unfortunate for him.

We’ve all been calling for cattle breaders to abolish normadic cattle rearing and embrace ranching. Tinubu only echoed the same sentiment in the piece above.

How do we solve the herders vs farmers crisis if we continue to blackmail and criticize everybody that attempts to offer a solution? If we are all against open grazing and we still won’t support ranching, how then do we want cattle breaders to survive? What exactly is wrong with consenting states providing unoccupied land to build ranches and settlement for herders?

Why did FG suspend ruga even when many northern states signed up for it? Why did they not implement ruga in the northern states that agreed?

Fulani normads should take their cows to the northern states that agreed for ruga...

No matter how arrogant and adamant they are, we would continue to remind them that ruga is NEVER wanted in the south!!!!

Of course it's a well known fact.Tinubu is ever ready to sacrifice the survival of the SW for his inordinate ambition to rule Nigeria.
However, he should remember that the north also betrayed Awolowo, MKO Abiola.The rubbling among the presidency cabal towards him should serve as a warning.

“President Buhari deserved to have lost the last election for the lackadaisical attitude he took to the issue of cattle rearing in the country.

“People have been killed in hundreds just because of the failure of leadership at a critical time.And the cattle herders have been given a sense of impunity.They kill without any compunction,..........and then you come up with Ruga.

“I think that there is going to be trouble in this country if this Ruga thing is not handled imaginatively and with humanity as a priority.Any country where cattle takes priority over human life is definitely at an elementary stage,”

RUGA is a voluntary program and states are free to do whatever they want with their land because the land belong to the states, not the FG and the FG can not force states to do RUGA or not to do RUGA.

The KEYWORD is voluntary, your own states voluntarily rejected the program and some states are voluntarily going ahead with RUGA because it's in their interest to do so.

Follow your rainbow and let other states follow theirs because one man's food is another man's poison.

Btw, stop wasting your time and energy on preventing RUGA in your state because it is optional, you don't have to and they are not forcing you to do RUGA so shouting and yelling over RUGA. Keep and eat your land, they don't want your land.

Keyword... Voluntary

And Tinubu has volunteered all Yoruba land for Ruga
Which is okay with Yoruba Muslims

But what about Yoruba Christians speaking out against it ... Why would they be part of what they never signed for..

Moreover... Cattle rearing is a personal business
Why use our common wealth to establish businesses for some people all because they are your people..
