List Of 11 States FG Approved For Herdsmen For Ruga Settlement

Image may contain: one or more people and horseThe Federal Government has approved the planned RUGA settlements across the country in spite of criticisms it garnered. The RUGA settlement scheme will take off its pilot phase in Taraba, Adamawa, Plateau, Kaduna, Sokoto, Nasarawa, Kogi, Katsina, Kebbi, Zamfara and Niger states.
According to a source at the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, everything is set for the implementation of the scheme.
“The pilot states for its implementation are Sokoto, Adamawa, Nasarawa, Kaduna, Kogi, Taraba, Katsina, Plateau, Kebbi, Zamfara and Niger,” the source told Punch.
“They are actually 11 in number and the governors of these states are coming to the ministry to learn
how the Ruga settlements will be implemented,” a senior official at the FMARD, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said. It added that “These are the states that have fully shown their interest. But unfortunately, people are talking about this as if the Federal Government is planning to grab land in the states.

“That’s not true. The plan is mainly for these states that are ready and the Federal Government had a discussion with the governors concerned. “Some of the governors came here and they promised to provide land because they have seen the benefits they will derive from the initiative. It is not that the Federal Government wants to invade the states, no!”

On whether the government will go ahead with the move despite public outcry, the source asked, “Why not? Of course, the government will go ahead with the programme, particularly in states that are willing to have it. For states that are not interested, no problem.”
