ASABA/Nigeria: Nigerians had been called to look at the issue of the Rural Settlement, RUGA, for the Fulani Herdsmen, recently announced and later suspended from a political point of view, towards the 2023 General Elections, as a plan by the federal government under President Muhammad Buhari, and the All Progressive Congress, APC, to prepare for the total control of the country.
Making this assertion, over the weekend the Presiding Bishop of True Worshippers Assembly INC, Bishop Greatman Nmalagu, in a statement made available to the press, said the federal government should come out clean and tell Nigerians their real motive.
He said the continuous insistent of some northern governors and leaders on the execution of the RUGA project, exposes that the project is not aimed to achieve what the federal government and the proponent of the projects are telling Nigerians as the settlement is designed to have all the necessary amenities that is required of a well developed communities, including polling units.
Bishop Nmalagu implored the government come out clean and tell Nigerians there main intention, and not issue of herders/farmers clashes.
“This government is not telling Nigerians the truth. The federal government under President Muhammad Buhari and the APC plan is to set up this settlement in preparation for the 2023 General Elections. The settlements will have all the amenities that befits a rural settlement, including polling units. Its their joker to remaining in power after 2023”. He intoned.
He called on Nigerians to use every legal means to reject the establishment of any settlement, in the name of curbing the frequent clashes between the herdsmen and farmers in the country.
