Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has disclosed that Fulani Herdsmen will be allowed to lay pipes from Bonny Ocean to the north for their cattle.
He made this known on Saturday when he received the founder and president of Throne-Room Trust Ministries, Apostle Nuhu Kure.
Speaking on RUGA settlements for herdsmen, Governor Wike said there was no part of Rivers State that would be given to herdsmen.
He maintained that the south-south state will not participate in any settlement programme for herdsmen by whatever name.
“If they want water for the cattle, they can lay pipes from the Bonny Ocean to the far North for their cattle; that is what we can contribute,” Wike said.
“We don’t have lands for any settlement scheme, our land is for commercial agriculture.”
Governor Wike also stated that Nigeria would have ceased to exist if not for the intervention of God.
“God loves Nigeria. If not for God, there would be no Nigeria. With what we are seeing, we need God’s serious intervention.
“We need men of God to continue to pray for this country,” he said.
