RUGA: Nigeria Christians Threaten To Drag Buhari To United Nations

LAGOS JULY 1ST (NEWSRANGERS)-The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Imo State chapter, has threatened to drag President Muhammadu Buhari to the United Nations should he continue with his Ruga policy for herdsmen in the country.
A report on Monday morning on Vanguard quoted Imo State Secretary of CAN, Reverend Eches Divine Eches, as alleging in Owerri, the state capital, that the RUGA programme was a strategy to freely create settlements for the Fulanis in the 36 states of the federation.
Eches called on the five governors of the South East states to quickly convene an emergency meeting to jointly and publicly reject the move to establish Ruga settlements for herders, the report said.
The Imo CAN boss reportedly added that the life of Nigerians would be under threat with such a policy, expressing fears that it could lead to further “killings” in the country.
He was quoted: “We, the Christian Association of Nigeria, Imo State chapter, are saying no to the Ruga policy of President Muhammadu Buhari.”
