A member of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) and former presidential aide, Prof. Ango Abdullahi has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to treat the Niger Delta Avengers the same way Boko Haram was treated.
“If we find truly that we cannot peacefully develop this country, the solution is to go our separate ways, why not?
“Even now, we are not happy with the kind of standard of security that is being applied in the country. If you are not going to fight Avengers, you should stop fighting Boko Haram.”
Prof. Abdullahi who is a former Adviser on Food Security to ex President Olusegun Obasanjo also blamed politicians for Nigeria’s problems.
“Any government that fails to ensure the well being of its people has the least legitimacy, it is not worth being a government,” he said.
He was speaking on Tuesday during the launch of a book titled: “The life and times of Umaru Turakin Bauchi at 2015 and Boko Haram: The charade versus the reality at 2016” in Abuja.
