President Buhari’s wife, Aisha has denied claims that she was gifted two SUV’s by Inspector General of police, Ibrahim Idris.
The allegations came from IsahMisau, senator representing Bauchi central on Wednesday when he told the senate ad-hoc committee assigned to probe Idris that the IG had given Aisha Buhari two jeeps that were not included in the appropriation.
“I still have some contract papers that the IG himself submitted to the court (MisauVs FG) where the first lady through her aide-de-camp requested a Toyota Hiace and a Sienna. The same day that the ADC wrote, the IG minuted that she should be given two jeeps. And it is not part of the appropriation. If you look at the appropriation, there is nowhere they said the first lady should be given two jeeps,” the lawmaker had said.
Responding to the allegations Aisha put out a simple tweet saying “I am still using my personal cars”.
Idris is currently under investigation by the senate on accusations of bribery and corruption involving some Nigerian banks and oil companies.
