The party said in the absence of Buhari in the country, bandits, marauders and insurgents have “seize our nation.”

It said the seeming inattention of the authorities “have emboldened insurgents and bandits to continue to over-run communities, unleash mayhem and bloodletting on citizens in Borno, Zamfara, Yobe, Adamawa, Gombe Taraba, Kaduna, Benue, Kogi and other states of the federation, including Mr President’s home state, Katsina.”

It recalled how bandits abducted the district head of Daura, Musa Umar, who is the father in-law of the president’s security aide.
