Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has once again faulted the RUGA Settlement establishment proposed by the Buhari led Federal Government.
Recall, that the governor Wike is one of Southern governors who strongly kicked against the RUGA project.
He has again spoken against the multi billion Naira project in a recent event where he was quoted saying that the Federal government was busy talking about where animals will eat when human beings have not eaten.
Wike also said: “If they want water for the cattle, they can lay pipes from the Bonny ocean to the far North for the cattle. They laid pipes to connect our oil to the far North so they can also lay pipes to connect our water to the far North. That is what we can contribute. We don’t have lands for any settlement scheme. Our land is for commercial agriculture.We can give them water and that will be our contribution. Any other thing,count me out”
