Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed, has said that Nigerians don’t need the permission of any state governor to become resident in their states.

He stated that Nigerian citizens don’t need the permission of Rotimi Akeredolu, the governor of Ondo state and also the Chairman of the South West Governors Forum, to stay in the forests in the South-West states.

Bala wile speaking on Friday, Feb 19, on Channels Television’s ‘Sunrise Daily’’ programme, said: “Land is in the hands of the state and federal governments in trust but Nigerians don’t need the permission of governors or the federal government to settle everywhere.

“You don’t need the permission of the governor of Bauchi or the governor of Ondo to be in the forests of Ondo if you choose to live in the forests because under Section 41 of the constitution, you are free to settle anywhere.”

This is coming after Rotimi Akeredolu dragged Governor Bala Mohammed for saying that Fulani herdsmen wield AK47 rifles to for self defence since the government isn’t protecting them. Rotimi Akeredolu said Governor Bala is unfit to be in public office.

Recall that Rotimi Akereolu had also ordered all herders to vacate the Ondo state forest reserves or register with the state government, a directive that received criticism from the presidency and some northern governors.
