Fiery lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Femi Falana is of the opinion that the controversial Ruga settlement scheme should be cancelled and not just suspended by the Federal Government.
Falana reacting to the Ruga suspension by the Federal Government on Wednesday, said the proposed scheme should be replaced with ranching funded by state governments and individual stakeholders.
The lawyer in a statement, believed Ruga was suddenly introduced from the blues, by some fifth columnists in the administration.
He said: “Ruga should not just be suspended but cancelled completely by the federal government. It should be replaced with ranching funded by state governments and individual stakeholders with the assistance of the federal government.
“However if the federal government is interested in establishing ranches in the states, it should apply for building approval from the state governments because the supreme court has held that physical planning is not in the exclusive legislative list.”
