The Buhari media organization (BMO), which often publishes statements believed to be written by the presidency media team but without the official presidential seal, explained in a statement on Sunday that President Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter, Hanan Buhari, flew a presidential jet to Bauchi last week because she was on an official visit representing her father, President Muhammadu Buhari.

“She was on an official assignment to represent her father, the President, at an event in the town,” BMO said.

The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) said in that circumstance, convention and protocol allowed her to use the aircraft.

The organization asserted that this had happened in the past.

  

In the statement signed by its Chairman  Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary Cassidy Madueke, BMO blamed the opposition People’s Democratic Party, PDP, saying that said it was only playing politics in its comment on the matter.
