How to End Boko Haram Insurgency in Nigeria – AUN President, Ensign

President American University of Nigeria, Margee Ensign

The President of American University in Nigeria, based in Yola, Adamawa state, Margee Ensign, has offered a three pronged approach to end the deadly Boko Haram insurgency ravaging north-east Nigeria.

Ms. Ensign shared her thoughts with PREMIUM TIMES on Wednesday in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

She has lived in Yola for a very long time and seems to understand the area very well. She said the use of military force, engaging the young population through education and an aggressive development of the region is the only viable solution to the insurgency in the zone.

The AUN president also runs an extensive peace program – the Adamawa Peace Initiative – in the North-east zone in Nigeria. The program is currently helping internally displaced people cope in Adamawa.

  • Mr. Abdin

    If the govt is willing to embark on such policies then insecurity will be history. The Adamawa peace initiative is a welcome development as that will pave a way for the stabilization of the system. Credit to Atiku for the creation of the American University of Nigeria.

    I hope our government will have the sense to beef up security around her and her schoool. As based on past acts of boko haram, they attack anyone that speaks against them, in particular encouraging education in the region

      BOKO HARAM HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH POVERTY IN THE NORTH———————–WHAT ABOUT NIGER REPUBLIC———-CHAD———————–ATI CAMEROON————-THE FULANIS ARE ANTI DEVELOPMENT–BECAUSE OF THEIR NOMADIC LIFE STYLE

    • the truth

      what do you mean, she is employed by atiku at his university

  • Comfortkay

    The Present government lack strong will to be disciplined, they have no plan or desire to end this Boko Haram . I don’t have to be a futurologist to know that the Nigeria President is not a blood politician and Nigerian are looking forward to elect a President that will move this nation forward. PDP agents you don’t need to read my comment.

  • larry

    Boko Haram dont want foreign education ,it is evil. LOL
    We can not waste our dwindling revenue on them ,i guess the sponsors have shot their selves on the foot.

  • Tufiakwa

    Madam, ask your Oga, Alhaji Atiku, why he did not consider “aggressive development of the region” in the 8 years he held sway. Why have governors of the “region” not considered any of those plans of yours.

  • Yejide Kayode

    I agreed that military force, engaging the populace especially the youth and massive development must be embark upon by the government to combat these insurgents terrorists. Also, I will suggest that the government must do all within their power to make sure that innocent vulnerable Nigerians lifes are secure and safe. Government must partner with public, religious groups, all stakeholders to gain their trust and loyalty to be able to gather intelligence to combat these deluded and insane savagery evils bokoharam and cohorts living amongst our communities and society.

    BOKO HARAM: The
    issue of Boko haram in North east Nigeria is nothing but sabotage. Some years
    back in the Benin City there was a so called miraculous/powerful armed robber
    who was terrorizing the whole state of Benin by name ANINI and when the POLICE
    team in the leader of Mr. Iyamu was asked to arrest Anini, His answer was he escapes
    into the air sometimes into the ground. We
    all know the story.

    The Military president IBB took a decision to change the police command in Benin completely and he injected a new crack team of police,
    that same week the mysterious Anini was
    short on the legs and was arrested.Anini declared ; I will not die alone my Oga
    who always give me the cover must follow , and he told to all Nigerian his
    business with Iyamu the police Boss. Latter he was executed along with Iyama
    and others. What I am saying if the Nigerian Army wants to arrest the leader of
    Boko Haram today it is possible, but it’s all politics just like Anini in
    Benin.

  • Bigzy

    What aggressive development is this lady talking about? Organising more Haj? Building more Almajiri institutions? Sending more of the youth to Yemen for terrorist education? A beg to rest.

    • GodBlessNigeria

      Be more objective… did you even listen to her?

      • Bigzy

        My objectivity is unimpeachable!
