The governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu has given reasons why the proposed RUGA system is the best option to permanently settle nomads roving around the country.
Speaking with journalists on Tuesday while taking them around some Fulani settlements in Jega Local Government Area of the state, Bagudu said RUGA system will stabilise nomads in a permanent abode which will in turn enhance livestock production in the country.
He said; “RUGA is just a Rural Grazing Area.
“It has been conceived long time ago to bring into one place nomads and their animals for permanent settlement with all the necessary provision of pasture and grazing to improve animal husbandry.
‘’It still remains the best option for settling nomads in a permanent abode and enhance livestock production in the country,’’ the governor said.
