Ooni Of Ife Opens Up On RUGA

Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, the Ooni of Ife has eventually opened up on the government-proposed Rural Grazing Area (RUGA) policy and the menace of herdsmen in the country.

He said; “The bad herdsmen are the one to be dealt with. Even the president has been trying to separate the good ones from the bad ones. We are glad that they have been trying to proffer solution to what is going on.”

“We are working closely with the Federal Government, and we are letting them know that it is a collective problem. If there is no adequate security, there won’t be any investment.”

“Nobody is supporting RUGA; as said earlier, the president said the issue would be discussed better at the appropriate time.”

“We should not allow something that would cause problem in the future. We are all Nigerians; if you want RUGA, individuals should go and get land.”

“Igbos have investments in Yorubaland; Yorubas also have investments in Igboland. Yorubas have investment in the North; they did not do it for free; the Northerners also have investment in Yorubaland”.
