Alhaji Hassan Ardo, the Nigeria Ambassador to the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, has said that the Ruga programme, whose implementation has been suspended, was “hijacked and politicised by mischief makers”.

“Let us stop playing politics with meaningful programmes and policies that will enhance the living conditions of Nigerians. Ardo expressed surprise that some state governors, who introduced the Anti-Open Grazing and Cattle Ranging Laws, had suddenly turned against the Ruga programme which, he opined, was the best option to tackling the perennial farmer/herder clashes.He said that the suspension of the Ruga settlement project was “very unfortunate”, urging stakeholders to look at the scheme “more positively”.
