Adopt Ruga if you want peace in Benue, Buhari tells Ortom

Governor Samuel Ortom wants peace in Benue, he should cooperate with President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime by accepting Ruga and other policies, says the Presidency.

Mr Buhari’s media aide, Garba Shehu, claimed the recent spate of insecurity ravaging the state resulted from Mr Ortom’s rejection of Ruga settlements.

His comment came on the heels of the killing of Benue residents on Tuesday by killer herders. While reacting to the Tuesday violence, Mr Ortom had said Mr Buhari’s “action and inaction” was responsible, accusing him of Fulanisation of Nigeria.

However, Mr Shehu, in a statement on Thursday, claimed the governor’s refusal to adopt the controversial Ruga policy showed he did not value people’s interest.

The governor had rejected the policy describing it as deceptive and against the interest of Benue indigenes, who are predominantly farmers.

“Benue under the Ortom administration ought to cooperate with the federal government in the implementation of a number of national strategies programmes in addressing underlying issues militating against peace, progress, and development.

“This can still get done when the interest of the people is placed above all other interests. A government voted into office by the people should treat the people as its masters and not as its servants,” said the statement.


Mr Buhari also accused the governor of stirring religious and ethnic violence, accusing Mr Ortom of the divide-and-rule tactic

“As Nigerians, we accuse colonial rulers of the policy of divide and rule.

“Today, it is our own leaders who pit region against region, religion against religion, ethnic group against ethnic group, and community against community,” the statement added.

Same administration that told people to give their lands up to be spared. Femi Adesina said donating land is better than being killed lol.

Remember that this land belong to indigenous Nigerians but for them to be alive, they need to give it up and let Fulanis take over.

The danger with that is that in 30 years, your kids will not have a place to call home because they will be hunted down by the same Fulanis and religiously, they will begin to slam their heads on the ground.

No where in the statements was RUGA mentioned,

The statement;
“Benue under the Ortom administration ought to cooperate with the federal government in the implementation of a number of national strategies programmes in addressing underlying issues militating against peace, progress, and development.

“This can still get done when the interest of the people is placed above all other interests. A government voted into office by the people should treat the people as its masters and not as its servants,”



Why cos mischief bringing up RUGA that had been settled and cancelled just to heat up polity, when National Livestock Transformation Plan is the new policy

Why are Benue elites and indeed elites in all of middle belt keeping quiet while their people are being exterminated? I give Ortom kudos for being courageous and speaking out for his people but Tivs, Idomas, Beroms, Jukuns, Igalas and others in the Middle belt must now walk the talk!

Igbos have shown the way and others must stand and defend their people too. If only we have governors that speak out like Ortom, it would have made things very easy for us.

Another way of saying give my people your ancestral lands or we will keep killing, raping your women and destroying your lands. This statement has lend credence to what Ortom said. "The president is working for Fulanis to take over the whole of Nigeria".

That's the opinion of the people's Gazzete writter, RUGA isn't even a proposed policy anymore but NLTP

Garba Shehu's statement is clear and unambiguous

"Benue under the Ortom administration ought to cooperate with the federal government in the implementation of a number of national strategies programmes in addressing underlying issues militating against peace, progress, and development.

“This can still get done when the interest of the people is placed above all other interests. A government voted into office by the people should treat the people as its masters and not as its servants,”

cheesy
Ortom should use ESN style to chase those murderous fulani herdsmen out of Benue forest.
Fulani herdsmen are not immortals
they bleed and breath too
they have families and loved ones too
they just have the upper hand with their fulanian army and police siding them.

Ortom need to man up and use the ESN style of operation show no mercy.

all he need to do is to dole out millions and purchase AK 47 and other assorted rifles and ammo and equip voluntary youths to act as militants.
he should not openly back them but secretly back and shield them.

This is the only language fulani terrorists understand
if they kill one kill them 10 and slaughter all their cows
make them fear you and take the fight to them occasionally.
you'll see how they'll flee your land.
you don't beg your enemies to have mercy on you
you challenge them and earn everlasting peace.
if you give them Ruga today they'll demand your villages and cities tomorrow.
That's the agenda
that's the mission.
chase them out forever.
you'll lost few men in the process but it'll save hundreds of men in the future.

God bless ESN

These Fulanis don't have a Country of their own! You can imagine! They want to terrorize Nigerians and dominate over 500 indigenous tribes!
