FG Suspends ‘RUGA’ Project

President Muhammadu Buhari has suspended the implementation of the Ruga Settlement programme.

The suspension of RUGA was announced by the governor of Ebonyi State Dave Umahi after a meeting of the National Economic Council committee on farmers/herders clashes at the presidential villa on Wednesday.

Umahi explained that the suspension became inevitable because the programme being implemented by the federal ministry of Agriculture and Natural resources is not consistent with NEC and federal Government approved National Livestock transformation plan.

He noted that the National Livestock Transformation programme is for the rehabilitation of displaced IDP’s resulting from the crisis and also for the development of ranching in any willing state of the federation.

Umahi said the National Livestock Transformation programme is voluntary for any state who may want to key in.
