The Muhammadu Buhari Legacy Foundation has called on northerners to cut off food supply to the South-South for 30 days until the Niger Delta Avengers militant group stops its attacks on petroleum pipelines in the South-South Region.

The Foundation’s Coordinator, Sani Bello Maikusa, said they have ordered Northerners doing business in South-South region to stop supplying agricultural produce, cows, donkeys, dogs, to that part of the county.

Speaking on Sunday in Kaduna during a lecture organised by the Foundation to celebrate President Muhammadu Buhari’s one year in office, Bello Maikusa lamented that the continued attack on petroleum pipelines in that region has made the country to lose 25 percent of its crude oil.

He said: “President Buhari’s efforts to improve power supply to above 5000 mgw has dropped to less than 150 mgw as a result of pipeline sabotage and avengers.

“Gas cannot be pumped for electricity and crude oil cannot be pushed to refineries in worri and Kaduna. We are therefore calling for a total boycott of the South-South region for a period of 30 days from July 1st to July 30 2016.

“All businessmen, goods services, agricultural suppliers, suppliers of cows, donkeys, dogs, from the 5 regions of the country should boycott south-south region in protest to the sabotage and pipe line vandalism going there.

“The 30 days boycott will show to the avengers that no region in the country can stands on its own or hold this country to ransom.”

The group also added that the activities of the Avengers are simply aimed to take revenge on President Buhari’s government for the failures of PDP and Goodluck Jonathan’s government.

The Chairman of the occasion, former Assistant Inspector General of Police Lawal Bawa, urged Nigerians to be patient with the Buhari’s administration s its set to take the country to greater heights.
