According to Channels Television, a source in the Presidency revealed the FG’s decision to suspend the programme, which has generated mixed reactions from Nigerians.
Africa News24 (AN24) understands that “Ruga Settlement” seeks to settle migrant pastoral families. It simply means rural settlement in which animal farmers, not just cattle herders, would be settled in an organized place with provision of necessary and adequate basic amenities.
Such amenities include schools, hospitals, road networks, veterinary clinics, markets and manufacturing entities that would process and add value to meats and animal products.
The Presidency source also revealed that the Nigeria Governors’ Forum would be addressing the issue soon.
