Buhari leaves as Bauchi APC campaign rally ends abruptly over power outage

The presidential campaign rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bauchi on Monday ended abruptly, leaving President Muhammadu Buhari with the option of leaving the venue without addressing supporters of the ruling party.
