Nigerian Presidency Lists Benefits of 'Ruga Settlements'

The presidency has said that the idea of ruga settlement was formed to address the clashes between farmers and herders in the country.  Some Nigerians have criticised the settlements as a ploy to claim land across the country for Fulani herders. The government plans to settle pastoral communities in rural areas and provide basic amenities and infrastructure to reduce land conflict.
