Buhari Daughter: Palliatives Warehouses Indicate That My Father Isn’t Nigeria’s Problem
One of Nigeria’s President daughter Zahra Buhari-Indimi, reportedly said the recent discovery of food items and other COVID-19 palliatives in several warehouses across the country indicated that her father, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), is not Nigeria’s problem.
She made this known through her Instagram Stories today.
She wrote, “Now that people confirmed that Buhari distributed enough palliatives nationwide, it is clear Buhari is not our problem.”
Over the past few days, several warehouses have been plundered by thousands of Nigeria’s citizens across the state such as Lagos, Plateau, Osun, and Kwara in the wake of the #EndSARS protests. The food items include cartons of noodles, sacks of Garri, and bags of rice, some of which had gone bad due to poor and prolonged storage.
The COVID-19 palliatives were donated by the private sector-led Coalition Against COVID-19, and it was found in private homes of politicians. Several Nigerian business moguls including industrialist, Aliko Dangote, Mike Adenuga, Femi Otedola, Oba Otudeko, Folorunsho Alakija, Tony Elumelu, and several others had donated over N30 billion in cash and food items to assist federal and state governments in tackling the COVID-19 challenge.
In Osun State, the government said it was waiting for officials from Abuja to “commission” the goods hence the delay in distributing them while in Lagos, the Majority Leader of the House of Assembly, SOB Agunbiade, said he kept the palliatives in his Ikorodu home because he wanted to distribute them on his birthday.
