THE Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has stated his position on the purported threat by the coalition of northern groups to evict all southerners in the north if the federal government doesn’t rescind its decision to suspend the RUGA settlements for Fulani herders within 30 days.
The Federal Government of Nigeria was forced to suspend the decision after it was greeted by widespread criticisms.
Angered by the news of its suspension, the northern youths purportedly issued a 30-day ultimatum to every southerner residing in the north to vacate unless RUGA is implemented.
The group had warned that failure of the Federal Government and Southern Governors to reverse the decision, there will be trouble.
Reacting, the PDP presidential candidate discarded the threat stating that, “there is no North or South, there is just Nigeria.”
Atiku on his Twitter page wrote: “My position on Ruga is the same as articulated by the Governors elected under the banner of my party, the PDP. My position has been well iterated by our Governors and the PDP is one.
“I will not dignify that threat with a response. There is no North or South. There is just Nigeria.”
