Babachir David Lawal, APC’s National Vice- Chairman, North-east, said it would be better if these political leaders in government returned home to help find a way to assist the military recapture and defend their people since the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and President Goodluck Jonathan are too busy with the 2015 general elections.

He noted that there is no point serving a government that is not concerned about the security and safety of people of the zone.

He said Mubi which is under Boko Haram occupation, is the hometown of  Bonnie Haruna, the Minister of Youth Development; Hajia Zainab Maina, the Minister of Women Affairs; Mallam Ibrahim Lamorde, the Executive Chairman of EFCC;  Bello Sali, the former Head of Service of the Federation, and Mohammed Umar Bindo, a serving Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
