His words: “Those involved in cattle business should be encouraged to go into ranching rather than RUGA settlement arrangement.

“It is heartening to note that the Federal Government has decided to heed the voice of the Nigerian people by suspending the controversial RUGA Project.

“However, my position is that the project should be outrightly cancelled and not suspended.”

Jarahgist.com recalls that the federal government had proposed the RUGA idea as a means of addressing the incessant clashes between cattle rearers and farmers.

Before its suspension, many Nigerians, stakeholders and governors kicked against its establishment.
