RUGA Settlement Policy and Its Controversy

Share this:

The Introduction of Ruga Settlement Policy by the federal government has continued to generate mixed feelings and litigation.

A suit has been filed against the Federal government over the introduction of Ruga Settlements Schemes in the 36 states of the country for the exclusive benefit of the Fulani ethnic group.

In a suit with number FHC/ABJ/CS/761/2019 instituted by the board of the Incorporated Trustees of Malcolm Omirhobo Foundation, the Federal High Court was urged to void and nullify the Ruga Settlement Scheme already established in Niger State and anywhere else so established throughout the country.

The plaintiff prayed the court to restrain the FG, the President, the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and the Federal Ministry of Agriculture to restrain their servants, agents and privies from carrying on with the Ruga Settlement Scheme in Sokoto, Nasarawa, Kogi, Katsina, Kebbi, Zamfara, Adamawa, Kaduna, Taraba, Plateau and Benue states already penciled down as pilot states for the government Ruga policy.
