Nigeria’s first Lady, Aisha Buhari has opened up after Senator Isa Misau accused her of receiving 2 sports utility vehicles from the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.
It would be recalled on Wednesday that Senator Isa Misau, representing Bauchi Central Senatorial District, while appearing before the Senate Ad Hoc Committee investigating various allegations levelled against the police boss accused the wife of the President of receiving the vehicles.
“I still have some contract papers that the IG himself submitted to the court, where the First Lady through her aide-de-camp requested a Toyota Hiace and a Sienna jeep.
“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 letter came from the ADC to the wife of the President. The most unfortunate thing is that even in the letter, the ADC wrote that they wanted the vehicles for her private engagements; they wrote that they wanted Sienna and Hiace and the IG said they should be given two jeeps. And he supplied the document to the court,” Misau said.
Responding to Misau’s allegation, the wife of the President took to Twitter and wrote: “I am still using my personal cars.”
However, some Nigerians have tackled the first lady accusing her of not giving a straightforward answer as her tweet did not state whether she received the cars or not.
