The Presidency has advised Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State to accept Ruga and other policies in order to achieve maximum peace in the state.



In a statement released by Buhari's media aide, Shehu Garba, it read that the recent increase in security attacks in the country was as a result of rejection of Ruga by Ortom's administration.

Garba also said that the rejection of Ruga settlements by Governor Ortom shows that he does not have the interest of his people at heart. Garba also accused Ortom of using divide-and-rule tacti which is engendering religious and ethnic violence.

Ruga is an Hausa term which means cow settlement. It is a controversial Nigerian policy introduced by President Muhammadu Buhari aimed at resolving conflicts between herdsmen and rural farmers. In Ruga, states affected by herdsmen crisis were asked to provide a large settlement for herdsmen so that that they would stop moving from place to place. However, these states especially Benue state rejected the Ruga settlement plan and called for it to be scrapped.



Governor Ortom argues that the Ruga policy is misleading and is against the interest of Benue indigenes. There are fears that the herdsmen through the Ruga programme will invade and forcefully take away the ancestral lands of the indigenes.

The Buhari presidency just openly owned up to sponsorship of terrorism.

Benue people have been marked for death, it's better you die fighting with honor than to die on your knees.

But I assure you that help will come when you make the move to defend your lives than when you submit yourselves for mass slaughter.
