Plans by the federal government to create cattle colonies, described as Ruga Settlement, have met with stiff opposition from different groups in the country.
According to the government, the aim of this Ruga settlement is to bring an end to farmer/herders crises that have categorised many communities in the country in recent years.
Leaders of Pan-Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere; Ohanaeze Ndigbo and Pan-Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) have all raised an eyebrow to the plan and outright rejected its implementation.
Sharing the sentiments of the leaders, a former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode described the country as the ‘biggest shithole” of the African continent.
In a tweet via his Twitter handle on Friday morning, he wrote: First it was political sharia. Then Islamist Boko Haram. Then terrorist Fulani herdsmen. And now Ruga cow settlements.
Nigeria has become the biggest shithole on the African continent. We are like an open public toilet that has never been flushed. Everything about our country stinks!
