What Atiku says about Ruga


Former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has made known his stand on the controversial Ruga settlement policy for herdsmen introduced by the Muhammadu Buhari administration but suspended earlier this week following strong opposition from the Southern and Middle Belt.

Atiku, Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), disclosed his position on the issue in a tweet on Friday evening from his official Twitter handle, @atiku.


He wrote: 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.”
