    Northern Elders have threatened to withdraw 2023 Presidential slot from South-East if they insist on rejecting Ruga project for Fulani herdsmen.

    The federal government of Nigeria led by President Muhammadu Buhari had proposed establishment of Ruga settlements, nationwide, for Fulani herdsmen who have killed over 5,000 people in Nigeria since 2015.

    Many Nigerians including the people of South-East have kicked against it, saying it’s a strategy to “Fulanize and Islamize” the country.

    Former Special Adviser on National Assembly Matters to former President, Shehu Shagari, Alhaji Tanko Yakassai, a prominent Northern Elder, said that its rejection by the people of South-East, is equivalent to the rejection of the 2023 Presidential slot.
