In an exclusive interview with DAILY POST in Gusau, the state capital, the group's leader, Alhaji Mai buhu Gumi, bemoaned the fact that there were significant breaches in the party's structure that the leadership had not repaired.


He argued that the APC has lost the trust of the populace, particularly the grassroots, who control the voting process, and that one cannot play politics successfully without having the backing of the entire populace, especially the grassroots.


Mai buhu Gumi continued by pointing out that the majority of women in rural regions have been forcedly made into widows who now wander the streets aimlessly.


He said that even security personnel whose job it is to protect lives and property are no longer safe and speak less of innocent people as the bandits have continued to howl like wounded lions.


In response to the APC state chapter's assertion that he and his political allies have no supporters According to Mai buhu Gumi, it was merely pointless propaganda that could be discarded in with other scraps of paper.
