The presidency in Nigeria on Wednesday described as “untrue, malicious”, and an attempt to “cast aspersions at the First Family”, a report that President Muhammadu Buhari‘s daughter, Zhara Buhari, had fraudulently secured a petroleum job.

President’s Buhari mouthpiece and blogger, Femi Adesina, said “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”.

Adesina said in a statement sent to TODAY NEWS AFRICA in Washington DC: “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”.
