Image
Southeast governors have said that they would rather sell grass in exchange for meat, instead of ceding any part of the land in any state of the region for the establishment of Ruga. The chairman of Southeast Governors Forum, who is also the governor of Ebonyi state, Dave Umahi of Ebonyi revealed this in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Emma Uzor, in Abakaliki on Sunday. His reaction comes in the wake of plans by the Federal Government to create Ruga settlements in states across the country. Umahi explained that the South-east zone had proposed a deal with the members of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) as a panecea to achieving lasting peace between farmers and herdsmen. His words; “There is no plan for any Ruga settlement in any part of South-East and South-South zones; but we made a proposed deal with MACBAN that can allow the zone to become very good business with sale of grasses to the herdsmen in exchange for meat. “There wil

Fulani Ruga: Over Our Dead Bodies, We Are Not One Nation – FFK Explodes

Image
Femi Fani-Kayode, in his contribution to the controversy trailing the proposed Fulani Ruga settlements, has said it is a plot to take over people’s land by the government, adding that it will only happen “over our dead bodies”. Fani-Kayode in his post mentioned that majority of the Fulani Herdsmen are not even Nigerians and they want to take over lands in another man’s country. He however made a call for this move to be resisted vehemently by the people and they must send them back to Guinea, Mali, Niger Republic, Chad and Futa Jalon where they originally came from. Fani-Kayode wrote: Is cattle business government business? They have taken everything from us. And now they want to take away our land! Well, I have news for them: this will not happen without a fight! It can only happen over our dead bodies! Are we really one nation? Were we EVER one country?

The question arises, are Southern Nigerians this stupid?? Why was it not known that at anytime the government intends to take decisions that will rape the future of the country, all they do is to cook a story and put it out there on the media knowing fully well that the southern Nigerians love media trends. In the First place many Nigerians do not know the effect of the next biggest RAPE that is on the way prepared by the FULANI people of not just Nigeria but the entire West Africa and the Saharas. After the failure of Whistle blowing and cattle colony they have deviced another deceptive means to take away the future of the southern people. The vital part of your existence as a people is the very portion of land the Fulanis intend to steal this includes an un-interrupted access to your sea and water ways. This portion is the beacon of the future of the southerners, the guarantee of their economy and the assurance of their existence. The Fulanis are at all front taki

They planned it for years,” he said. Speaking more deeply, Kanu criticized the southeastern governors, Ohanaeze and others who fought against
