Gov Ganduje Reveals States Not Required To Implement RUGA Initiative And Says Fulani Migration Should Be Banned

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has assured that States where Fulani are not indigenes will not be required to implement the RUGA settlement initiative.

Ganduje made the clarification on Saturday

The governor told newsmen that the RUGA settlement initiative was for states who could cater for the Fulanis, and was targeted at making herdsmanship a socio-economic investment not a socio-cultural issue.

“So States where indigenes are not Fulani cannot be asked to implement RUGA, as such it is for states that can cater for the Fulanis and wish to improve their herdsmanship.

“That is why we are developing RUGA in Kano state, so that Fulani people can be in one place and enjoy all the social services like other people of the state.

“The type of herdsmanship the Fulanis are doing now will be improved, so that they can produce more cows, more milk and ensure more economic prosperity to themselves,” Ganduje said.

The governor, however, said the best way to improve the living standard of Fulani people was by banning their seasonal migration to the central and southern parts of Nigeria.

“No better way to improve their lives if you don’t prevent their migration from the north to the central and southern parts of Nigeria.

“Fulani migration should be banned otherwise they would continue to suffer and the security challenges in the country would continue to exist,” he added.

  1. They should stay in their states mbok

  2. Someone is beginning to have sense.

    You cannot force a state with no iota of Fulani indigeneship, to carve out a vast land for herding. It's unheard of.

    They should remain in their states and do their herding there. It's not by force to come to the South.

  3. The best solution is what the CBN proposed. Ban milk importation, milk importers should secure loans and buy/lease lands in the North since the issue has generated sentiments in the south.

    Assemble the herdsmen on the lands, build schools and hospitals for them as proposed by the CBN. Nurture the cows and get milk

    1. The best SOLUTION is what Ganduje said NOT what CBN proposed.

    2. Ganduje is looking at cow raring for consumption while the CBN is looking at cow nurturing for consumption and milk production which would serve multiple purposes. It will create jobs, stop herdsmen VS farmer clash, it will grow the GDP, lessen pressure on Forex. The import bill stands between $1.2b to $1.5b annually.

      Ironically speaking, we have used sentiments to push investments away from our region

  4. Gov. Ganduje on point as regards the RUGA issue.

  5. I second,thidcond and even fourthcond the motion

  6. Wicked and evil-minded people. Stay with your hardship in your jinxed territory.

  7. RUGA na scam with hidden agenda. Thank goodness Nigerians know better and can speak up now
