The Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari, to abolish the movement of herdsmen from the Northern
to the Southern part of Nigeria, in order to curb Farmer/Herders clashes.
The Governor, in an interview with Newsmen, on Friday, July 19, said that the settlement programme, RUGA, was a must for his State, and that it has been fully embraced by his administration as the only way to reduce the concerns raised on insecurity.
“The Federal Government should abolish the movement of herdsmen from the Northern part to the Southern part of Nigeria, because that creates a lot of problems, and the only way to do it is the RUGA issue.”
“This settlement is a must, and to us in Kano State, it is a task that must be done, because we must improve the quality of lives of the herdsmen, so that they become full Nigerians, and behave like any other
good Nigerian; so that the conflict we are having all over the country can be reduced, and at the same time, they can improve the way they breed their cattle”, Ganduje said.
