He, however, said the "truth will be told someday" as he blamed the abduction and the rising security challenges across the country to acute leadership failure.
"I saw this video and I grief for these young boys and the future Nigerians.
"Those who voted this President can't but agree with me that their votes brought us into this state hopelessness. This has nothing to do with tribe, religion or age but ineptness of a leader.
"I hope we all learn from these experiences going forward. As per the story of the abduction and (freedom) release of the boys that is shrouded in secrecy, the more Nigerians look, the less they see. I'm however persuaded that, truth will be told someday."
On President Muhammadu Buhari, the former governor said:
"Regretably, we have entered this one chance. A President, who cannot protect his own kinsmen can definitely not protect anyone in any part of the country. We are all own our own."
