The warning given by a coalition of Northern groups have caused series of reactions from Nigerians as the group issued a 30-day ultimatum governors who are opposing the RUGA settlement policy to immediately accept it or face drastic actions.
The programme which attracted widespread opposition from Nigerians and was yesterday suspended by the Federal Government and the Northern group is asking the states opposing the programme to shift ground or be ready for the unexpected.

Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday July 3rd, the spokesperson of the group, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, called on the Federal government to put a stop to the ”raging madness” of some governors opposing the RUGA policy.
In his words, “While we warn all state governments that stand against the implementation of the RUGA Initiative to desist and give peace a chance, we place President Buhari and the Federal Government on notice that they must act to halt and completely stop this raging madness within 30-days beginning from today, Wednesday July 3rd.”
“For the avoidance of doubt, we advice the Federal authorities and the Southern leaders to heed the 30 days notice, failing to, we will most definitely be left with no option than to consider resorting to our decisive next line of action”
