Abdullahi Ganduje, Kano state governor, has called on the federal government to abolish the movement of herdsmen from the North to the South, citing that it causes problems.
Speaking during an interview session with Channels Television, Ganduje said the best way to tackle the brewing crisis between herdsmen and farmers is to implement the RUGA settlement wherein they have a critical area of settlement instead of moving about.

“The Federal Government should abolish the movement of herdsmen from the Northern part to the Southern part of Nigeria because that creates a lot of problems and the only way to do it is the RUGA issue.
“This settlement is a must and to us in Kano state, it’s a task that must be done, because we must improve the quality of lives of the herdsmen so that they become full Nigerians and behave like any other good Nigerian, so that the conflict we are having all over the country can be reduced and at the same time, they can improve the way they breed their cattle” he said.
