He said: “We can all see what the country has been turned into. Who are those who told Nigerians that President Buhari is a saint, that President Buhari will salvage Nigeria? What is their sense of judgement? Who are those aspirants who abandoned PDP, betrayed PDP and went to support President Buhari.

“Now we’re suffering. People are talking everyday. From January to March in Kaduna, over 1000 people have been killed. So many people have been kidnapped.
