DUTSE – Gov. Sule Lamido of Jigawa on Monday assured non-indigenes living the state that rights as Nigerian citizens, would be protected.

Lamido gave the assurance when he received the Emir of Dutse, Alhaji Nuhu Sunusi, who paid him Sallah homage Dutse.

He explained all non-indigenes living the state were there as a matter of ‘right’ not ‘privilege’, hence would not be discriminated against.

The governor said that Nigerians were free to live where ever they chose without any undue harassment by any individual or government.


The governor said those asking Nigerians to register in own country were sending a wrong signal that was not healthy for the unity of the country.

He said that both indigenes and non-indigenes had been living peacefully the state, promising that efforts would be made to sustain the status-quo.(NAN)
