The General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries (OMF), Apostle Johnson Suleman, says any state governor in support of the establishment of Ruga (cattle Fulani settlements) should be ashamed.
Naija News reports that the clergyman made this comment on the micro-blogging site, Twitter on Tuesday night, July 2.
This online news platform understands that the Federal Government led by President Muhammadu Buhari conceived Ruga settlements in order to address the incessant clashes between farmers and herders in the country.
However, the Ruga settlements idea has stirred controversy in the country, with Plateau State governor, Simon Lalong, the different names that had been given to the programme was the source of controversy enveloping it.
Reacting to the idea, Apostle Suleman, who kicked against the federal government’s Ruga settlement plan, noted that land should be bought not given for free.
His words: “Any governor that gives out his land for RUGA rubbish should be ashamed.
“You don’t enter people’s ancestry to give their lands to cows, stay in your locality and do your business there.
“If you want land anywhere in the world, you pay for it and it is willingly given,” Apostle Suleman opined.
