Wole-Soyinka-1024x576 Ruga Will Destroy Nigeria, Buhari Should Have Lost 2019 election – Wole Soyinka Explodes

Nobel Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka, has opposed the federal government’s proposal to establish Ruga settlements across the nation for herdsmen.

Speaking in Lagos on Tuesday at the launch of United Nations’ Solutions 17 SDG programme, Soyinka berated the federal government for the idea, which he said can cause Nigeria to explode.

According to him:

“President Buhari deserved to have lost the last election for the lackadaisical attitude he took to the issue of cattle rearing in the country.

“People have been killed in hundreds just because of the failure of leadership at a critical time. And the cattle herders have been given a sense of impunity.

“They kill without any compunction, they drive away the farmers who have been contributing to the food solutions in the country, the cattle eat their crops and then you come up with Ruga.

“I think that there is going to be trouble in this country if this Ruga thing is not handled imaginatively and with humanity as a priority.

“Any country where cattle takes priority over human life is definitely at an elementary stage,” he said.
