Awka - Former minister of information, Labaran Maku, has hit at All Progressives Congress’ (APC) Muhammadu Buhari, stating that the People’s Democratic Party’s presidential president should not blamed for the insurgency outbreak within the country, reports Naij.

Maku who is also the supervisor of minister of defense, argued that governors should be held responsible for the insurgencies at the hands of the insurgent, Boko Haram. He went on to say that the governor as chief executive in their respective states should lead the areas that they have been voted in for, and insecurity within their state is their responsibility.

Maku was quoted saying; “there is nothing good for him to offer what he could not do in his 40s is it in his 70s that it will be realized” referring to Buhari.
