Archbishop Chukwuma Speaks Against Ruga
The Archbishop of Enugu Ecclesiastical Province (Anglican Communion), Most Rev. Emmanuel Chukwuma, has debunked news on social media that some governors of the South East geo-political zone have secretly allocated lands to herders for Rural Grazing Area (RUGA) settlement.
Archbishop Chukwuma made the clarification during his sermon at the 85th birthday/thanksgiving service for Dame Beatrice Ekwueme, widow of the late former vice president of Nigeria, Dr. Alex Ekwueme.
The archbishop disclosed that he had discussed with the governors of the South East zone on the matter, adding that, “even last night, I spoke with Governor David Umahi, chairman of the South East Governors Forum and most of the governors in the South South.”
He said he was always in touch with his host governor in Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, and urged the people not to misinterpret or misunderstand his efforts at maintaining peace in the state
