The governor said that already, the required funds for the scheme had already been earmarked and set aside.



Matawalle revealed that after the pilot scheme which would commence on Tuesday, the Federal Government would come up with its own Ruga settlement programme in the state.

He reiterated his earlier directive on contractors to source for all their materials and manpower locally “so that wealth can go round.”



Earlier, the project consultant who presented the master plan, said the project would include access roads, landscaping, grazing reserves, primary and secondary schools.
