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.
