Fight Niger Delta Avengers before facing Boko Haram – Ango Abdullahi

Onetime adviser to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, on Food Security, Prof Ango Abdullahi, Tuesday, advised the Federal Government to take on rampaging Niger Delta militant group, the Niger Delta Avengers before facing Boko Haram. He stated that the activities of the militant group posed great challenge to national security.
Speaking during a book launch in Abuja, Abdullahi, also blamed politicians for political instability in the country.
According to him, “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.
“Any government that fails to ensure the well being of its people has the least legitimacy, it is not worth being a government.
“Nigeria has not made the kind of progress that was expected of it since its independence after 56 years. We must take into account that we are responsible for these.
“Nigeria has signed so many protocols that are injurious to her, there is need to review some of these protocols.
