President Muhammadu Buhari has said that Nigerians have the constitutional right to live, work and raise their families in any part of the country without restrictions.
The president restated the constitutional position on Saturday, September 2, 2017 when Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina state paid a courtesy call at his country home Daura, Katsina state, as part of the Sallah celebrations.
President Buhari said 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.
While assuring all Nigerians of their safety, the president said: “Every Nigerian has a right to live, work and thrive in any part of the country, irrespective of their backgrounds.’’
Speaking to newsmen after the visit, Masari said that the president 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, Alhaji Faruk Umar Faruk and members of his cabinet.
