RUGA: There is no North or South, There is Just Nigeria – Atiku

The People\'s Democratic Party presidential candidate in the last general elections in Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, made his position known on the recent controversy regarding Federal Government’s RUGA settlement for cattle rearers.

Although, the proposed program that requested for portions of land in every state of the federation for the creation of cattle ranching has been set aside by President Muhammadu Buhari, who bowed to public opinion.

Yet, Nigerians are still debating about it. All People\'s Democratic Party States disagreed with the plan, some All Progressive Congress ruled States, particularly in the South also condemned the program because they believe that it could give one ethnic group (Fulani) an undue advantage over others.

Alhaji Atiku Abubakar who is also a Fulani stands with his party, the PDP, on the matter against the idea of the Federal Government. He said there is no North or South, what we have is just Nigeria.

My position on Ruga is the same as articulated by the Governors elected under the banner of my party, the PDP. My position has been well iterated by our Governors & the PDP is one. I will not dignify that threat with a response. There is no North or South. There is just Nigeria.
