Falana to fed govt: ‘replace RUGA with ranching’

Falana to fed govt: ‘replace RUGA with ranching’

Lawyer and activist, Femi Falana has advised the federal government to replace the suspended Ruga settlement scheme with ranching.

Falana said ranching should be funded by state governments and individual stakeholders with the assistance of the federal government.

He stated this while reacting to the suspension of Ruga settlement scheme by the federal government.

He recalled: “As far back as 2016 the Buhari administration had opted for ranching.

To actualise the ranching policy 11 states had made available 55,000 hectares of land.

“Ranching has also been adopted by the National Livestock Policy of the Buhari administration. “What is now left is for the immediate implementation of the ranching programme”.

Falana believed that RUGA was suddenly introduced from the blues by some fifth columnists in the administration.

He contended: “RUGA should not just be suspended but cancelled completely by the federal government. It should be replaced with ranching funded by state governments and individual stakeholders with the assistance of the federal government.

“However if the federal government is interested in establishing ranches in the states, it should apply for building approval from the state governments because the supreme court has held that physical planning is not in the exclusive legislative list”, he added.
