By Sylvanus Okpe

Following the 30-day ultimatum issued to the Federal government to re-esterblish its suspended RUGA settlement policy accross the country by a coalition of Northern youths group, the Northern Governors’ Forum has called for calm in the country urging every frayed nerve to sheath it’s sword.

The call followed the statement of the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, thursday describing the 30-day ultimatum a coalition of a Coalition of Northern group gave the federal government to rescind its decision to suspend the RUGA policy as irresponsible urging all Igbo to defend themselves against the threat.

President Muhammadu Buhari had to suspend the implementation of the Ruga project, which was meant to be created across the 36 states of the federation as a result of the public outcry and vehement resistance of the policy by some state governments particularly in the southern parts of country that followed the introduction of the initiative.

A Coalition of Northern Group (CNG) had following the suspension of the implementation of the project, issued President Buhari a 30-day ultimatum to commence the implementation of the project across the country.

Chairman of Northern Governors Forum, Mr. Simon Lalong of Plateau State, in a statement issued in Abuja yesterday, called for calm and urged the coalition to allow the government handle the matter assuring that federal government would soon come up with a widely acceptable policy that will provide solutions to the incessant problems of the farmers/herders crises in Nigeria.

Part of the statement by the Lalong reads,
“With the ensuing development following the announcement of the suspension of the Ruga resettlement initiative by the federal government yesterday, it has become pertinent for me as Chairman of the Northern Governors’ Forum to make clarifications on the true position in order to calm nerves.”
