I am still using my personal cars - Aisha Buhari denies Misau's alligation


The wife of the President of Nigeria, Aisha Buhari, has denied the allegation leveled against her by the Senator representing Bauchi Central, Isah Misau that the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris gave her 2 SUV 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.

Aisha Buhari in reaction to the rumour took to twitter to deny the 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.
