People of Nigeria elected you to address the security challenges, which is primary responsibility of every government”.

The former presidential aspirant also appealed to the Federal government to reopen schools. So that their children will go back to school and write senior school certificate Examinations SSCE and other examinations.

I appealed to the federal government and the minister for education in particular to reopen the schools. People have been going to the markets, worship centres, why not school, they should reopen the school and ask the school authorities to ensure strict adherence to the COVID 19 prevention protocol”, he added.

On the crisis rocking the All Progressive Congress ( APC), Alhaji Maizabura advised President Buhari and the Acting chairman of the party to intervene and salvage the party, by shopping a credible man that will salvage the party from collapse, he said though he is not an APC member but as an elder statesman and a patriotic citizen, he believes that they work hard to bring somebody that act as a unifying factor in the party.

“Since the party is expected to zone the National chairmanship to the Northeast, I want to advice President Buhari and the national leaders of the party to consider and woe Engr Babagoni Machina to become the national chairman of the party. As I believe., he is the best candidate to bring unity among the party members, though I don’t think Machina will accept this huge task of rebuilding the party but I adviced the president to set up committee of party leaders to go him and persuade him in the interest of the party and the nation in general”, he added.
