‘I’m still using my personal cars’ — Aisha Buhari denies Misau’s allegation


Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, has denied the allegation by Isah Misau, senator representing Bauchi central, that Ibrahim Idris, inspector general of police, gave her two cars.

On Wednesday, Misau had told a senate ad-hoc committee assigned to probe Idris that Buhari’s wife had requested a Sienna and Hiace bus through her aide but Idris bought two SUVs for her.

According to him, the vehicles were purchased for her personal use and was “not part of appropriation”.

“I still have some contract papers that the IG himself submitted to the court (Misau Vs 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.

But reacting via a tweet, the president’s wife denied Maina’s allegation.

“I am still using my personal cars,” the tweet read.

The IGP is being probed by the senate for series of allegations labelled against him by Misau. Misau had accused Idris of collecting bribes from oil companies and banks where police officers are posted to provide security.
