Palliatives In Warehouses Evidence My Dad Isn’t Nigeria’s Problem – Buhari’s daughter
Zahra Buhari-Indimi, a daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari says the discovery of food items and other COVID-19 palliatives in several warehouses across the country is evidence that her father, Muhammadu Buhari, is not Nigeria’s problem.
Zahra said this on her Instagram Stories on Sunday, October 25.
She wrote, “Now that people confirmed that Buhari distributed enough palliatives nationwide, it is clear Buhari is not our problem.”
Thousands of Nigerians have in the last few days plundered warehouses in several states including Lagos, Plateau, Osun, Cross River and Kwara in the wake of the #EndSARS protests.
In some instances, COVID-19 palliatives donated by the private sector-led Coalition Against COVID-19 were found in private homes of politicians.
Some of the items include cartons of noodles, sacks of garri, and bags of rice, some of which had gone bad due to poor and prolonged storage.
Several Nigerians had complained about the high rate of poverty in the country compounded by the lockdown ordered in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Several 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.
However, there have been complaints by several groups that monies and items had been diverted, an allegation which the ICPC is investigating.
