He said across the 36 states of the country, nowhere is safe as travelling by road, rail and air has become a nightmare for Nigerians.
"The country is under the siege of terrorists, bandits and other criminal gangs holding sway over swaths of ungoverned territories from the North to the South, East, and West.
"The most disheartening of these challenges is the fact that there is a well-orchestrated plan by foreign terrorists with their sponsors to cause more havoc and entrench a chaotic atmosphere and a dangerous agenda.
"While the daily killings and bloodletting of Nigerians have continued unabated under the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government."

Calling on Nigerians all over the world to continue to support Peter Obi in his quest to rescue the nation, Adang said the most disheartening of these challenges is the fact that there is a well-orchestrated plan by foreign terrorists with their sponsors to cause more havoc and entrench a chaotic atmosphere and a dangerous agenda.
"We are therefore on a mission to reset Nigeria to fulfil her foundational mandate where "peace and justice shall reign.
"A Nigeria, where social justice and institutional democratic values are well respected so that the “labours of our heroes past shall not be in vain."
He also said that this has become more exigent now as the country is fast drifting and descending towards the dire precipice of collapse, comparable only to the path taken by a few failed states in Africa and Asia.
According to Adang, the urgency to rise to the occasion at this critical juncture compels self-reflection and a compelling need for patriotism that is driven by the zeal to save Nigeria as opposed to vested interests.
