The immediate past Kaduna Central senator, Shehu Sani, has reacted to the ultimatum issued by Coalition of Northern Groups to the Federal Government, South East governors and others, who rejected Federal Government’s plan to set up Ruga settlement for herders.
The senator described the group as not only clownish, but also comical masquerades and vendors of anarchy.
He wrote on his official Twitter handle on Friday, “The ‘Northern group’ that issued ultimatum to the FG and quit notice to others are clownish and comical masquerades and Vendors of anarchy.”
Recall that a group, under the aegis of Coalition of Northern Groups, had on Wednesday ordered the Buhari government to stop governors from objecting to the Ruga settlement plan.
The spokesman of the group, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, had said, “While we warn all state governments that stand against the implementation of the RUGA Initiative to desist and give peace a chance, we place President Buhari and the Federal Government on notice that they must act to halt and completely stop this raging madness within 30-days beginning from today, Wednesday July 3rd.
“For the avoidance of doubt, we advice the Federal authorities and the Southern leaders to heed the 30 days notice, failing to, we will most definitely be left with no option than to consider resorting to our decisive next line of action”.
Nigerian Government had on Wednesday announced a suspension of the progamme.
