The Presidency has described a report claiming that Zahra, daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari, got fraudulently employed, as a lie.
According to the online medium, Ms. Zahra Buhari-Indimi allegedly got employed as by the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) as a top executive, outside statutory procedures.
However, Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari in a statement described the report as untrue, malicious and an attack on the president’s family image.
“Zahra, just like any other Nigerian, can work wherever she secures employment. We hasten to add that the story is false in every material particular.
“The publication is untrue, malicious and meant to cast aspersions at first family since the tendentious platform claims the job was secured fraudulent, the statement reads.
He, therefore, enjoined Nigerians to ignore the piece masquerading as a news story.
