Presidency Denies Zahra Buhari’s ‘Fraudulent Appointment’ Into Petroleum Agency
The presidency has refuted reports that President Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter, Zahra, had been fraudulently appointed into the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA).
Buhari’s senior media adviser, Femi Adesina, denied the reports in a statement on Wednesday.
Adesina said while Zahra like every other Nigerian has the right to work anywhere she secures employment, the report of her engagement by PPPRA was untrue.
“An online medium given particularly to fake news publishes that Zahra, daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari, has fraudulently secured a job with the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA).
“While Zahra, just like any other Nigerian, can work wherever she secures employment, we hasten to add that the story is false in every material particular.
“The publication is untrue, malicious, and meant to cast aspersions at the First Family, since the tendentious platform claims the job was secured fraudulently.
“All people of goodwill are enjoined to ignore the hack piece, masquerading as a news story.’’
