Ohaneze Ndigbo, apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, has commended the federal government for suspending the proposed Ruga settlements in the country.
The federal government had suspended the initiative following public outcry against it.
In a statement by Nnia Nwodo, president-general of Ohaneze , the organisation said it is heartwarming that the Buhari administration finally deferred to the opinion of others on public issues.
“It is heartwarming to observe that for the first time the current leadership at the federal level has deferred to people’s opinion on public issues,” the statement read.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo is as worried about the restoration of peace between farmers and herders in the country as the Federal Government and believes that the ultimate solution to it is to embrace ranching.
