FCTA Bans Open Grazing In Abuja, Establishes RUGA In Three Area Councils by valentineuwakwe(m): 1:30am On Feb 18
The Federal Capital Territory Administration has prohibited open grazing of cattle in Abuja , the nation’s capital.

The Administration said it had communicated the directive to the leadership of the Fulani herdsmen in the FCT.

Disclosing this in an interview with our correspondent on Wednesday, the Director , Abuja Environmental Protection Agency, Dr Hassan Abubakar , stated that the one month ultimatum issued to the pastoralists had expired, adding that violators would be sanctioned henceforth .
The decision of the FCTA is coming against the ban on open grazing by the Northern Governors’ Forum , which described the practice as outdated .

The AEPB director said over 100 cattle earlier confiscated were returned after their owners were fined by courts, adding that any herdsman found grazing his animals on Abuja streets would be penalised heavily.

A special team , he said , had been constituted to enforce the directive .

Abubakar further revealed that the FCT Minister, Muhammad Bello , had earmarked five locations for cattle grazing in Abaji, Kwali and Kuje Area Councils.

He said , “ We held meetings with the leadership of Fulani herdsmen in the FCT and they have agreed on so many issues . We have given them time, which they asked for , and when the time lapses , we will strike. They are not allowed to graze inside the city; that ’ s prohibited.

“ Even the minister has approved some grazing areas where RUGA is going to be created; about five areas. We have one around Kwali; another one in Abaji and one in Kuje.

Better leave RUGA in the North dont think of bringing it down to the South.
All the troubles they have been causing all around is just to justify this RUGA bullshit. Ko le work mhen. It can’t work. Do your RUGA in the North. The whole of Sambisa forest is large enough for u. Don’t worry we will buy your cow at any price if we must eat your meat.
Imagine using their personal business which does not add any monetary or economic value to the national purse to cause trouble just for their selfish reasons.

Very good.

But, we hope politics won't destroy this RUGA. Nigerian politics destroys and corrupts institutions.

What business does this cattle rearers who are well know security risk doing in a strategic place like the FCT? Why establishing RUGA for people you called foreign terrorists
who have been violating the sovereignty of the Nigerian nation with utter impunity?

Since the Buhari government is desperate to subjugate people to the domination & expansion of these killers, them they should prepare-pig, sheep, goat, chicken, camel farmers too are on the way.

It's their private business, so let them buy lands to use. If you give these people one inch of opportunity, the next thing is to start planning how to exterminate you. Blood suckers

This RUGA must be exclusively for the North. Don't bring it down south, we won't take it.

Interesting, all those communities that allowed RUGA will soon cry for help, better do it there, they can come to the South and East to buy green Grasses, period.

Finally is PMB aware of this and who will enforce the law?

NIGERIA is a time bomb waiting to be explode but may God help us

Fulanis are too smart. That has been the end plan of all these government. Five grazing areas in Abuja. Fulanis are visitors in Abuja. Who knows how many square kilometres this will cover just for Fulanis alone.

Nigeria is a country of Cowards
