President Muhammadu Buhari Saturday in Daura, Katsina State, said Nigerians have the constitutional right to live, work and raise their families in any part of the country without restrictions.

Receiving the Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Masari, at his country home as part of the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations, 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.

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

Speaking to journalists 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 said Mr. Buhari’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, Faruk Umar Faruk, and members of his cabinet.

      • Julius

        • Agba

          You are bigger FOOOOOOOL.

  • Buhari d scarecrow.

    Really,wot about building a church in ur village with certificates of occupancy.Bloody nora.

    • Saleh Ngaski

      Do you how many churches are in Daura? Pls look for something else to say. All these trash were said about him before the election but he still went ahead to win. Get out of your cage and go round to see what is happening

      • 0tile

        He did not win fairly, he won the election un-democratically and by threat of violence. What is highest academic qualification? When asked to produce a genuine certificate he produced 30 senior lawyers to defend him. Have you seen that kind of thing anywhere on earth before?

      • Buhari d scarecrow.

        Hello,buhari is talking crap,he is d father of social & political corruption in Nigeria.We need fairness equity & respect & foolishness.

      • Buhari d scarecrow.

        Really tell that 2 d cows pls.

  • 0tile

    Yeah, Nigerians can live in any part of the country without restrictions including the areas held by Imam Abu Shekau in the North East. Of course they can but they are responsible for their own safety. Farmers in Enugu and Abakiliki are leaving where they like to live but armed Fulani herdsmen continue to make worms meat out of them, as simple as that.

      A Question for Muhamadu Buhari

      • What intelligent steps have you taken against Nigeria’s 17th-month running ruinous
      economic recession, after wasting away 103 days in London; under false pretence
      that you were been detained by medical doctors; whereas you weren’t, since no one
      or medical doctor discharged you from your illusive medical detention before you rose
      and ran away from your hiding place, the next day, once Nigerians resident in London
      stormed your hiding place under the banner of RESUME or RESIGN to protest what
      they said was “an unbecoming laggard act of reckless abandonment of official duty”?

      • Saleh Ngaski

        Ok ooh. So he was not on life support again? What kind of hatred is that? No matter what people like you do or how they feel, Buhari dey kampe! Only those who are stealing public funds, benefitting from the largese of stealing or are planning to steal wish Buhari bad. The innocent poor masses are praying for him every second

        • 0tile

          Don’t ask whether Buhari was on life support or not. Nobody knows, do you? The devil alone knows. I warn you again, never speak for Buhari, he does not belong to you, and he does not belong to anybody. Ka ji ko?

          • Julius

            lolz, I expect you to say that after all, you told us that he was dead in the UK. The devil is a liar and you are the devil. Bury your head in shame, you are a shameless and disgusting swamp monkey.

      • Ado

        So you believe now that he spent 103 days and returned healthy and safely. You are even asking what he had done or not done.
        Congratulation for being alive again.

  • FirecloudOFGOD

    President Buhari, I quite agree with you. At the moment we should focus on BH. Even Iraq is mopping off the remnant of ISIS.

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    ..But when the hypocrite wants to make appointments at NNPC, HE WILL ELIMINATE A WHOLE TRIBE AND FILL IT UP WITH NORTHERNERS.WHEN THEY WANT TO RECRUIT INTO THE DSS , KATSINA , THE HOME STATE OF BUHARI WILL HAVE MORE PLACES THAN THE ENTIRE SE ZONE………ONE NIGERIA MY FOOT !!

    • Tunsj

      Tawanda, I know exactly what you are saying, but why not give President Buhari credit for saying that “Nigerians can live anywhere in the country without restrictions”. I totally agree with you that he should have included people from the East.

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        That statement is hypocritical, he has not condemned those who issued the quit notice publicly nor has he ordered an investigation or arrest into the incident. WE ALL KNOW THAT NIGERIANS CAN LIVE ANYWHERE WITHIN THE COUNTRY AS STATED IN THE CONSTITUTION , THAT IS NOT NEW. BUHARI FINDS IT DIFFICULT TO CONDEMN HIS PEOPLE BUT GETS IMPATIANTLY TRIGGER HAPPY WHEN IT HAS TO DO WITH IGBOS .

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    BUHARI’S ONE NIGERIA INDEED !!

    • Otile

      Some Idiotic illiterates will tell people not to worry about injustice in federal appointments but they don’t have the commonsense to know that without resources from the ND one Nigeria is banza. Everyday some senseless Oduafraudians will be rehashing the same thing over and over again thinking that they are making good sense. Nonsense

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        THOSE MILITANTS IN THE CREEKS ARE ABOUT TO REMIND THEM WHO OWNS THE LAND, I READ IN @SR that they are very angry at the moment.

        • Ado

          They have always been angry. There is nothing new.

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            Is the anger justified ? Take a good look at the recent appointments at NNPC .

          • 0tile

            There is something new, that is, Odufraudians are inventing new lies everyday to continue stealing our oil. Why can’t they leave our land and_suck the oil wells in Sokoto and NE?

  • Utari Nmuo

    booharry is a boold sucking foolani baal demon.

    • Jon

      Right to live anywhere is not the main and urgent issue now. It is restructuring. Buhari, why are you and your Hausa/Fulani afraid of the word, RESTRUCTURE?

  • Julius

    I thought that you all said you are not Nigerians but biafraudians, so why worrying yourself about appointments by the FGN ?

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      Why dont you drill Fulani and sw oil ? why come to the regions you hate so much to drill ?

      • Julius

        What da hell are you talking about. It’s the topic about oil or appointments with the FG ? For your info, I hate no region but despise liars, fake and frauds like you?. By the way, have you seen me in your God forsaken region looking for anything ?

        • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

          You wrote about appointments and why you support marginalization on the grounds that we claim to be Biafrans, ok but drill your own oil in that case .

          You tend to forget a lot or is it that you lack a sense to decipher what you put down

          • Julius

            I wrote that I support marginalization ? lolz, I asked you a simple question which you are too lazy or lack the capacity to think and give me a simple answer so, it’s oil drilling to you ? It’s so simple to me that you shouldn’t worry about what the FGN is doing since your fake and lying arse is claiming that you are not a Nigerian. Decipher that !

    • Okokondem

      Many here have long concluded that you are not only imature but simple-minded as well. I recommend that you sit back sometimes and take a second look at what you post. You will be amazed how idiotic you sound.

      • Julius

        lolz, sure many here ..with a name like urs, i’m not surprised. Tell me what’s immature about asking why are you worrying about a country that you claimed is not your country ?. Genius, maybe you can answer that for me/

  • tsunami1earthquake

    How tepid and lackluster was this statement! Something that borders on national security should not be said in a way as if the speaker is just yawning and waking up from sleep.

  • Olatubosun

    Well said my amiable president

    • Jon

      Right to live everywhere is not the main issue now. It is restructuring. Devolve power to the states and create state police. Resource control.

  • Olatubosun

    God bless Nigeria and God bless buhari and his cabinets

    • Jon

      Right to live everywhere is not the main issue now. It is restructuring.

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      God does not bless the wicked, he punishes them with sickness and pains just like the Biblical Nabuchadenezzar

  • Ado

    You mentioned 15 out of 50 appointments announced. What happen to the balance of 35 that you don’t want to mention. I’m very sure if they were northerners you would have been pleased to write their names boldly.
    Why are you being mischievous? Just because you hate somebody spraying rumours on that person’s will not help your interest.
    I advice you to learn from northerners, they don’t have on what they perceived to be your interest neither do they try to undermine it. All they do is to focus on their own, where they need to negotiate they do or compromise in a give and take.
