OHAFIA-TV News | Herdsmen: All States must have Ruga – Matawalle says after chatting with Buhari

Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle, on Wednesday, said all states must now embrace Ruga.

He spoke to reporters after briefing President Muhammadu Buhari on the security situation in his State.

Matawalle said a presidential intervention was necessary “to sustain the peace Zamfara is now enjoying’’.


He added that solution to the recurring violence between farmers and herders “is in sight”.

“All state governments must brace up and construct grazing grounds, popularly called Ruga, so as to find a lasting solution to clashes between herdsmen and farmers across the country,” he said.

Matawalle expressed confidence that the provision of the grazing grounds will discourage herdsmen’s desire for relocation.


“In Zamfara, we are constructing Ruga for them. If we allow them to keep moving around, migrating from one State to another, we cannot bring this issue to an end,” he stated.

He added that governors were discussing ways to contain herders in one place.
