President Buhari had on Tuesday said during his meeting with former give president Namadi Sambo that it is only God that can effectively supervise Nigeria’s border with Niger Republic.
“I come from Daura, few kilometers to the Republic of Niger, so I should know a bit about that country. The President is quite decent, and we are regularly in touch. He is sticking to the maximum term prescribed by the Constitution of his country.
“Also, we share more than 1,400 kilometers of border with that country, which can only be effectively supervised by God. I will speak with the President and offer his country our support. We need to do all we can to help stabilize the Sahel region, which is also in our own interest.”
This statement had caused an uproar on Nigerian social media particularly Twitter NG. Taking to his Twitter page on Wednesday, December 23, Sani urged his fellow countrymen- Nigerians to vote for God since the President said He’s the only one that can secure the border.
”First they said only God can end banditry and insurgency,and now they said only God can protect our borders.Fellow countrymen,next time Vote for God.”
