RUGA Plan, Good Or Not?

With the current RUGA plan in Nigeria, it is a known fact that the main aim of this plan is to promote animal husbandry, which some people see as being important while others do not.

What are your thoughts on this plan? Would it have an adverse effect in the country or not.

  • It does have an adverse effect considering what we are hearing so far About the shoting down of meat market and the refusal to donate land for the project in some part of the country.

    Rule of law is the principal thing, once the government is no longer about the people and for the people the end result is a total mess.

    Conclusively, the people need to be oriented and checked well enough and where the policy is not accepted, it should not be enforced.

  • The issue of ruga settlement might increase the rate of killings in this nation because  the fulani are wanderers so I don't tink ruga settlement is an option CZ they will one day claimed that land and it will cause more harvoc in our society

    Other than spread the smell of cows

  • RUGA has both advantages and disadvantages, it will promote our country in terms of Agriculture and reduce importation but it's more of like giving herdsman more land

    - Bello Ahmad Tijani - 2019-08-16 11:59:56 Quote

  • It's really a good plan ,because it will reduce the rate of importation from other countries

    And it will boost the sales of local produce

  • It is bad because the fulani heardsmen may use it to claim ownership of the lands

  • Partially this RUGA of a thing is a good thing as it will promote the growth of animal production and marketing and at the same time it'll be of great effect to crop production

  • The RUGA plan is not a good plan. Knowing very well that Fulani people are violent people. So you can't risk accommodating them in your place for indefinite period of time.

  • It is only good if it will be implemented in the northern part to avoid clash with the farmers in the East or south

  • It can only be good if the Government can provide a land for them because the settlement in other region might cause Tribalism.

  • RUGA in itself is not a bad project, it's the circumstances around it. Ethnicity being one of our biggest and long standing problem in Nigeria, is why RUGA is so vehemently rejected. Instead of seeing it as a way to improve agriculture and economy, ethnic groups see it as an imposition on their lands, which it might be. Considering that the northerners have not garnered the best reputation so far.

  • RUGA is not a good plan at all. It is a plan by the northerners to allocate lands from all the states to Fulani herdsmen.

  • No according to the history of felony fulani herdsmen enter through this country from Nigeria true Usman danfodio and now they are one of the people proteins and voted for as president in this nation will allow Google to take over all the country deciding meeting and stuff like that

  • it's unforunate in our country where our economy is not friendly graduates are seaching for jobs yet no job, government workers haven't yet be paid their salary for some months now and such a country like nigeria is planning to establish ruga settlement how do you think it will work with about 11billion dollars yet your workers haven't been paid and institutions are planning on stike, isn't that not wasteful, the ruga settlement plan is meant to be handled by a private section and not the federal government because it's still our taxes his using to do all this things and the Fulanis are paying taxes are they?? this will bring conflict between the communties and the fulanis and there be much killing because the valve their animals more than human life..I think Nigeria government supposed to reason well before bringing anything out.. Isn't only Mr president problem now this is all Nigeria problem and I don't think democracy is working in Nigeria at al...lWhich peace is he bringing. They want to capture Nigerians, and make them their slaves.

  • The Ruga  to me is No. The Fulani's doesn't go to any land and return back in peace. I think they should remain in their land is personal business not federal business

  • I believe the plan is good, we don't need to depend only on petroleum 

    - Bukola Ayobami - 2019-08-22 13:53:55 Quote

  • That plan is evil, it is a known fact there's no need hiding it. If they like they should pack they herds and leave Nigeria not just shutting down sales of meat. We'll see how they'll survive it.

  • no to RUGA, to me it's just a strategy to fully islamise the country Nigeria. The question still remains, why are they insisting on RUGA when Nigerians are saying no to it?

  • it depends on how the plan was laid out. animal husbandry has it benefits and detriments, my answer is no because the world is evolving and we can't trend back to the olden days where farmers and herders carry along with them their cattle 

    - Matthew Ajewole - 2019-08-29 09:47:26 Quote

  • Ruga is is good, because it encourages  animal husbandry. But the fear of unknown of our people and unforseen action that may result to. i will advice the goverment to enlightening us more and assures the land will not be totally acquired by the Northerners ,since they involved more in this businnes

  • RUGGA issue what does that has to do with Easth,south and westh Nigeria there are a lot of land in the north why not there alone is not good plan for the Christians fulani people are not good to leave among people in a community they are too violence i have been with them in KEBBI STATE long ago Rugga is never a good plan I mean never.

  • If their plan comes true, they will not carry cows and sell meat, they will carry humans and kill them for meat.

    This people value cow to human lives.

  • Riga is a good plan but in a wrong way. For crying out loud, Nigeria is a multi ethnic country and a just one tribe should not be allowed to take over the lands of others for their business. The adverse effect of this has already showed itself how herdsmen are killing farmers in their own Land. I think Riga should be taken over in each state  that want to allow it by the respective government of each state since it is a way of promoting agriculture.

  • It's a good idea but the lands that would be used, there should be terms and conditions attached to it so as not to cause problem in future also there should be laws or rules that would guide the acts of the herdsmen. 

    - Olaoye Boluwatife Samuel - 2019-09-13 12:26:01 Quote

  • In my own thought, i think is not good because we all know the kind of people those herdsmen are so give them that type of advantage will be harmful to the people all over the country.

    So I will just advice the government to find a large space for them in the Chad

  • I don't think it is good because we know how these herdsmen are. So if they are now given this type of advantage, it will be very harmful to the people all over the country. To me, it is just a strategy to fully Islamist Nigeria.

  • RUGA as in the idea of it is not bad but the planning and methods of achieving it is worse than a leper. How can government force individual or communities to provide a land that is non existent. Let them be established at the northern sides of the country because they have enough land mass. Let them allow the eastern and western sides to be.

    To me i don't even really understand that RUGA issue , before a policy is passed ,i think. They suppose to be a public hearing inorder to   look into the adventage  and its disadvantages before inforceing it to the masses

    - Reuben Sunday - 2019-09-16 21:20:28 Quote

  • It not a good plan, why not go back to farming where will get enough money before we discovered crude oil. Animal husbandry is good but due to the Fulani terrorizing the country, i'm not in support of it. It will also spoil and destroy the soil nutrients when there is overgrazing 

    - Ojetunde Adeoluwa Samuel - 2019-09-17 14:15:31 Quote

  • Sincerely, it is a good concept with so many benefits to all. But my problem with it is the foundation on which the concept is standing on or to stand on. Currently, the idea is great but it can be a vehicle for more havoc and choas which the country has no strategy of combating. So to me, let it still remain a concept until our foundation is strong enough to carry it.

  • This plan is evil it will bring crisis to the country instead of tasking every state to donate a land while not tell this herdsmen to look for land in their own state of origin 

    - Onekeneke prince - 2019-09-18 20:51:03 Quote

  • RUGA for me is just another means to "Fulanize" Nigeria .

    Why is it that so much emphasis is being given to herdsmen when other sectors of our agriculture needs serious attention . Let us reason this cows are taking more attention than human lives. 

    Can't our security operatives work again to stop the bridge of law and order by Herdsmen?

  • RUGAto me is a very big no. I rather suggest we go for cattle ranch because with ranch you can establish anywhere you want without any problems but coming to give someone a land in a state they are not from and they don't belong in is to me out of the line. If you want to rear cattle, go and get a ranch or forget it period.

    Any right thinking people and government won't agree to such nonsense act. 

    A country were animals are regarded more than humans.

  • I won't say it a good idea cos the only thing they do is to rare cows and you must no b a ruga to have cow in this country. I've seen cows farms that are doing well in Nigeria and they don't belong to ruga. Saying yes to ruga is just another  means of spreading those guys all over the country. We have been doibgbrine without them and we definitely will do fine without them

  • I don't think it's the right thing to do.they are so many things to be done instead of bringing in Fulani... One day there would claim the land as theirs and it would cause loss of properties avd lives
