Kano Inaugurates New Committee over Settlements of RUGA .


The Kano State Government has taken practical lead in the setting up of RUGA settlements in the state with the inauguration of an implementation committee on Thursday.

The 16-man committee was inaugurated on by Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje in Kano to identify critical areas of settling herdsmen across the state.

The committee, chaired by Mr Jibirilla Ahmed, has been tasked with the responsibility of determining the type of social and infrastructural services that will be provided for the settlement.

“You are to determine the type of social service and infrastructure that will be provided for the RUGA settlement, using veterinary hospitals, clinics, water, schools, markets, and also looking into the whole system.”

The governor also tasked the committee to focus on the socio-economic part of the project and not just the socio-cultural offerings the initiative has offered over time.

“It is more of socio-cultural, rather than socio-economic and it has to change to socio-economic, otherwise, it will continue to be an uneconomic venture.

“So in Kano, having looked at all the issues concerned, both at the national and state level, we decided to create RUGA settlements in our forests that are existing and with the help of Islamic development bank, grazing areas will be provided”, Ganduje said.
