President Muhammadu Buhari has directed security agents not to bar officials of past administrations including ministers from travelling abroad.
Buhari, in a statement by Head, President Muhammadu Media Team Mr Garba Shehu, said that the officials are entitled to their full rights and privileges under the constitution and must not be subjected to any undue harassment and intimidation at the airports or at other points of entry and exit.

“Unless otherwise directed by the courts, no law-abiding citizens should be barred from travelling abroad. We must treat fellow citizens with courtesy and respect.
“Officials at the borders and other points of entry and exit should conduct their affairs in strict compliance with due process. No one has my permission to bar anyone from travelling abroad,” the president said.
