President Muhammadu Buhari has suspended the controversial Ruga Settlement Project, an initiative of the Ministry of Agriculture.

The President’s decision comes days after the idea was met with outcry.

Ruga, which was designed to stem the tide of herdsmen/farmers clashes across the country, has been described by many commentators as an avenue to Islamize Nigeria.

ThisDay reports that the president had consulted stakeholders before suspending the idea for a thorough review and well accepted approach.
