Tambuwal further urged the APC to desist from playing politics and save Nigerians from the prevailing high level of insecurity and poverty.

Instead of APC concentrating and fight insecurity, what the party is doing is moving from one state to the other to poach people.

Wike also urged Matawalle not to be intimidated by the antics of the APC, who he accused of fuelling the insecurity in the state.
