The Biafra Nations Youth League (BNYL) has stated that suspension of RUGA project by President Muhammadu Buhari instead of cancellation shows that there is no genuineness in what the Federal Government is doing. It said that RUGA has been repackaged as National Livestock Transformation programme by the Presidency as a new strategy to implement it across the South, especially the South-East and South-South.

In a statement on Monday signed by its Chief Press Secretary, Comrade Kufre Obot, the group said it will do everything humanly possible to frustrate the implementation.

BNYL, through its Deputy Leader, Ebuta Ogar Takon, had earlier threatened to evict northerners from the entire eastern region if the Coalition of Northern Groups goes ahead with its threat to expel southerners from the North if the Federal Government fails to implement RUGA by July 30 this year.

He lamented that similar incidence was the cause of the Biafran initial secession of 1967-70, stating: “Everyone can now see reasons why our fathers, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu and Philip Effiong rebelled against Nigeria.”

BNYL said it will henceforth begin to check herdsmen excesses in the region to avoid unexpected attack on communities.

“We dare the so-called Abdulazeez Suleiman and his coalition groups to execute their plans on July 30 or hide their faces in shame,” the statement said.
