President Muhammadu Buhari says Nigerians have the constitutional right to live, work and raise their families in any part of the country without restrictions.
He made the remark on Saturday in Daura, Katsina State, when he received Governor Bello Masari, at his home as part of the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.
“The Nigerian 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,” the President stated.
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 which is 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, Alhaji Faruk Umar Faruk and members of his cabinet.
