Zamfara State Government in north-west Nigeria says it will inaugurate Ruga project in the State as part of celebrations to mark Governor Bello Matawalle 100 days in office.
The Secretary to the State Government, SSG, Alhaji Bala Maru, at a news conference in Gusau, the State capital said the Governor would formally launch the Ruga settlement which the State Government had already allocated 100 hectares of land from each of the three senatorial districts of the State, to.
He explained that the Ruga project in the State was wider in scope than the original plan of the Federal Government.
The SSG said that the administration had every reason to celebrate given the obvious achievements recorded in spite of the security challenges.
Mr Maru added that free medical services, drugs as well as fertiliser would be provided to some selected existing Fulani settlements.
The celebration which is scheduled for September 2 to 6, would showcase the State’s rich culture to the rest of the world.
