The Aare Ona kakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams, says the Yoruba tribe will not forgive governors that adopt Ruga settlement, a scheme initially proposed by the federal government to tackle crisis between farmers and herdsmen.
Speaking with newsmen, he likened the federal government’s plan for Ruga settlement to an “afonja scenario,” saying the scheme will only contribute to more damage to the country.
The leader of the Oodua Peoples Congress said the initiative is a dangerous policy which will drive the country into more chaos.
The aare ona kakanfo also condemned the federal government’s alleged proposal of 100 billion naira for Miyetti Allah.
He said the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration is only supporting a wrong plan, as actions of the herdsmen have chased out investors and prevented farmers from going to their farms due to the fear of being kidnapped.
It will be recalled that Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, had also discredited the initiative, saying it is going to be an explosion if not handled with care.
