The Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, Walid Jibrin has urged Nigerians to embrace the establishment of Rural Grazing Areas programme of the Federal Government.
Jibrin told journalists at his Nasarawa country home today in Nasarawa State that the proposed settlement policy for herdsmen will promote peace and security in the country.
He also explained that the programme will boost food security and improve the health and standard of living in rural communities.
Jibrin commended the federal government for introducing the RUGA programme in the country considering its importance.
He also called on the Igbo and Yoruba ethnic groups to embrace the programme in the interest of national development.
He, therefore, called on all herdsmen and other Nigerians to shun armed robbery, kidnapping and other negative tendencies in the interest of peace and development.
The PDP BOT chairman also urged Nigerians to live peacefully irrespective of their ethnic, religious and political affiliation for development to reign.
