Buhari to Nigerians: 'Go If You Want to Go • Leave Nigeria If You Have Another Country to Go To'

President Muhammadu Buhari has said that any Nigerian who has another country to go should be allowed to go there.

The Senior Special to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in a statement, quoted Buhari as saying this yesterday while meeting with stakeholders from the Niger Delta region.

The presidential aide quoted Buhari as saying that his government is determined to make life comfortable for all Nigerians.

We are determined to make life comfortable and affordable to all Nigerians. If anybody has a country to go to, let him go, we will stay here and salvage our country," the president was quoted as saying.

Shehu said the high-level meeting with leaders and other stakeholders was to seek ways to end the militancy and the sabotage of oil infrastructure in the Niger Delta region.

He noted that Buhari pitched a vision of unity and progress for the country in which peace reigns and said peace, security, investment and prosperity are linked together.

If we give peace a chance, investors will come here to invest. Nobody will invest in an insecure environment,” the president said.
