People living in Lagos don’t know what’s happening in Nigeria – Ango Abdullahi


Professor Ango Abdullahi, a former Vice Chancellor of Ahmadu Bello University, has declared that people living in Lagos have no idea of what’s going on in Nigeria.

The spokesperson for the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) said this in an assessment of security challenges in the country.

On the recurring herdsmen/farmers clash, he argued that many people are yet to understand the core issues behind the crises.

Abdullahi particularly stressed that people who reside in the former nation’s capital have little knowledge of the situation.

“Those who live in Lagos don’t know what is happening in Nigeria. Lagos is the end of the world”, he told Vanguard.

On President Buhari’s second term bid, the elder statesmen said it is up to Nigerians to decide.

“Nigerians should wake up and make sure that they get people of quality that will eventually take Nigeria to its proper place of good governance and the products of good governance.

“We have been hearing reports of billions stolen by Nigerians who are politicians, who are civil servants and others who have stolen money.

“Yet when politics comes, these thieves are defended on the basis of friendship, on the basis of religion, on the basis of ethnicity and, based on these, they are declared innocent.

“There are only guilty because other areas deemed them so. So, Nigerians really need to take control of their country, by looking at their country and finding people who will govern them well.”
