Ruga: VON DG, Okechukwu reacts as Buhari suspends project

Okechukwu gave the commendation in Enugu on Wednesday while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria .“I must commend him, not minding that the programme was a laudable one, but still went ahead to act on calls by well-meaning Nigerians to suspend it.

According to him, Buhari had demonstrated that he is a true democrat, who strongly believes on the principles of democracy. “Since, well-meaning Nigerians suggest that there was a better way to treat the farmer-herders and animal rustling issues, Buhari as a good democrat is ready to listen.NAN reports that Buhari on Wednesday suspended the `Ruga Settlement’ Programme initiated by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture in preference for the National Economic Council’s National Livestock Transformation Plan .

`Ruga Settlement’ is a rural settlement in which animal farmers/herders stay in an designated place provided with basic amenities such as schools, hospitals, road networks, vet clinics, markets among others.Umahi said that the National Livestock Transformation Plan would be all inclusive, adding that it was for states that were willing to key into the programme.
