“He should drive even by 6am from Abuja to Kaduna. I challenge him to do it.
“Or drive from here to Delta where he comes from without police escort or any backup since he said the road is safe. Let him drive and prove to Nigerians that the road is safe. There was still an incident on that road two days ago.”
