Buhari tolerating “rubbish from some people” – Masari

KATSINA- The Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Masari says President Muhammadu Buhari deserves commendation for tolerating “rubbish from some people”.

Masari added that it was not true that the president has failed Nigerians as being claimed in some quarters.

The Katsina governor spoke on Sunday during an appearance on Television Continental.

“The rating of the President has not changed. Anybody saying that the rating of the Buhari administration has gone down should wait till when we would have an election.

“Protests are necessary in a democracy. Even in the best democracy in the world, people protest. The fact that we have democracy does not mean that people should not complain or protest.

“I don’t think Buhari has failed us, I think he has tolerated us. We once had a civilian president who couldn’t take the rubbish that Buhari is taking from some people,” Masari stated.

On banditry in his state, the governor said that his government initiated the idea of dialoguing with bandits to restore peace but its efforts failed because the bandits were not organised.

“I started the idea of dialogue with bandits way back in 2016 in collaboration with the heads of security agencies and we visited areas where the bandits were in charge.

“Some of them laid down their arms but the agitation continues and it escalated last year with the kidnap of the Kankara boys.

“The previous dialogue failed because the bandits are not under an organised leadership or umbrella. They are in various groups and categories,” the governor said.
