Buhari Insists Nigerians Can Live Anywhere Without Restrictions

By Dipo Olowookere

President Muhammadu Buhari has maintained that every Nigerian has the right to live and do business in any part of the country without being harassed.

After his return last month from a 3-month medical vacation in the United Kingdom, Mr Buhari addressed the nation, where he said no Nigerians should be told to quit any part of the country for not being an indigene of the place.

Speaking on Saturday at his hometown in Duara, Katsina State, where he went to celebrate Sallah, the President said Nigerians have the constitutional right to live, work and raise their families in any part of the country without restrictions.

While receiving his state Governor, Mr Bello Aminu Masari, President Buhari reiterated that the Federal Government would guarantee the security of everyone in the country, and ensure protection of all from harassments by reasons of their states of origin, tribes or ethnic backgrounds.

“Every Nigerian has a right to live, work and thrive in any part of the country, irrespective of their backgrounds,” Mr Buhari assured all Nigerians of their safety.

Speaking to newsmen after the visit, Governor Masari said President Buhari had brought so much honour and pride to his home state by living a life of integrity, fairness and kindness to all, a reflection of his fear of God.

He noted that the President’s leadership style had attracted positive global attention to the state, and the country, praying that God would continue to uphold him in good health.

The Governor was accompanied on the visit by the Emir of Daura, Mr Faruk Umar Faruk and members of his cabinet.
