Senator Jibrin acknowledged the constitutional right of citizens to live anywhere in the country, provided they abide by the law as he emphasized the importance of national unity and development through collaboration among different ethnicities.

In a bid to foster unity and peaceful coexistence among Nigeria’s diverse ethnic groups, Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Barau Jibrin ( APC, Kano North), has urged Northerners residing in the southern part of the country to support and contribute to the well-being of their host communities.

While visiting him in his office at the National Assembly Complex, Abuja, Senator Jibrin promised the leaders of the Hausa communities in the six states of the South-West to look into their complaints and further implore them to regard the states they are residing in as your home.

He gave his guests explanations on ongoing efforts to cushion the hardship faced by Nigerians while commending President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for releasing grains to cushion the rising cost of food items in the country, he urged governors and local government chairmen to take a cue from the President.

“He has done what is expected of him. Mr. President is a very kind person. He has been doing this even before he became the president. So, as always, this time around too, he demonstrated that good quality.

“What is needed here is that everyone should be on board, particularly state and local governments. I am urging all governors to take a cue from our president; and the local governments as well. Because the federal, state, and local governments all must make sure that we deal with our problems in a collective manner,” he added.

On his part, Senator Jibrin pledged to distribute rice to 200,000 households as part of his contribution to efforts at addressing the rising cost of food in the country.

Earlier, the leader of the delegation, Sarkin Hausawan Shagamu in Ogun State, Alhaji Inuwa Garba, said they are being sidelined in the areas of education and employment in the southwest.

He commended Senator Jibrin for extending his various empowerment initiatives to the three senatorial districts of Kano State.
