Palliatives in warehouses evidence my dad isn’t Nigeria’s problem – Buhari’s daughter

Published

A daughter of the President, Zahra Buhari-Indimi, says the discovery of food items and other COVID-19 palliatives in several warehouses across the country is evidence that her father, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), is not Nigeria’s problem.

Zahra said this on her Instagram Stories on Sunday.

She wrote, “Now that people confirmed that Buhari distributed enough palliatives nationwide, it is clear Buhari is not our problem.”

Thousands of Nigerians have in the last few days plundered warehouses in several states including Lagos, Plateau,  Osun, and Kwara in the wake of the #EndSARS protests.

In some instances, COVID-19 palliatives donated by the private sector-led Coalition Against COVID-19 were found in private homes of politicians.

Some of the items include cartons of noodles, sacks of garri, and bags of rice, some of which had gone bad due to poor and prolonged storage.

In Osun State, the government said it was waiting for officials from Abuja to “commission” the goods hence the delay in distributing them while in Lagos, the Majority Leader of the House of Assembly, SOB Agunbiade, said he kept the palliatives in his Ikorodu home because he wanted to distribute them on his birthday.

Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project has asked the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission to investigate the circumstances surrounding the alleged hoarding of COVID-19 palliatives in warehouses in several states.

SERAP also urged the ICPC “to visit the states where COVID-19 palliatives have been discovered in warehouses, and to track and monitor the distribution of palliatives across the 36 states of the country, and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, to remove the risks of diversion, and ensure that the palliatives get to those most in need, and not used for political or corrupt purposes.”

Several Nigerians had complained about the high rate of poverty in the country compounded by the lockdown ordered in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Several business moguls including industrialist, Aliko Dangote, Mike Adenuga, Femi Otedola, Oba Otudeko, Folorunsho Alakija, Tony Elumelu, and several others had donated over N30 billion in cash and food items to assist federal and state governments in tackling the COVID-19 challenge.

However, there have been complaints by several groups that monies and items had been diverted, an allegation which the ICPC is investigating.

    Yes we all agree that your father is not the problem of this country, but his problem is lack of proper monitoring and supervision we vote for your to fight against corruption, but he just sitting in the villa, if your father is during the right thing no one should hide the palliative.

    With all respect, he has a stake. For not following up to see to it that the palliative really distributed to poor masses despite the wide complain from all over the country is a great deal of flaw in his side.. I have great respect for him, but the truth be told

    Exactly, buhari isn’t our problem,is long have been telling people around me, they still don’t want to understand, our problem in Africa Nigeria precisely is our politicians,judges, Ministers etc. Youth my advice to all of us is for the youth to protest against politicians and judges and all that.

    I can’t blem her, because every her movements is absolutely free! Though I like president before according to what I view is that the problem we have in Nigeria are:
    (1) LACK OF SUPERVISION
    (2) SELFISHNESS/SELF-CENTERED
    (3) LACK OF ORDERS/INSTRUCTIONS
    (4) SUBJECTIONS BY SO CALLED LEADERS
    (5) CORRUPTION
    OUT LEADERS ARE LIKE LOCAL DOG And HUTTER
    YOU CANNOT SEND A DOG TO AN ERRAND WITHOUT FOLLOW UP E.G
    When you need an animal meat to eat and you call your dog to hurter for you while you busy at home, my dear it will do but the dog will use any animal killed for it’s own interests but when you re hurting with it you won’t allow the dog to change your mind. That’s exactly what is going on in our federal Republic of Nigeria.

    My dear pallatuves aren’t d only problems Nigerians have with the Govt under ur dad’s watch. Don’t be shallow. Tax payers money used to service their offices and d country’s resources exploited with disdain and d people are suffering! Then they get freebies from wherever as pallatuves for d masses and yet it’s not properly disbursed to d people under his watch still! Who is to blame? Kakistocracy has been the order or system of APC govt since it’s inception. But God pass! Always be unbiased and genuine in analyzing stuff. Or u just remain calm. Posterity will surely judge us all. The people are the govt They put them there ., elected them regardless. Govt isn’t spirit! People in govt should be compassionate . Key factor. It’s not a one man business where u play out your personal ambition at others detriment.. #Peopleslivesmatter. Pallatices? What about the roads, infrastructures,insecurity,education,inflation,fuel hike,corruption,negative mindsets,injustice,premeditated counter protests,ethnic issues,party superiority at all cost over good intentions,religious conflicts etc .. and you make such unguarded utterances. Let’s be guided please!!!!
