President Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter, Zahra Buhari, has said that the discovery of COVID-19 palliatives in warehouses across states is an evidence that her father is not the problem of Nigeria.
Zahra stated this in a post on her Instagram account on Sunday.
She wrote, “Now that people confirmed that Buhari distributed enough palliatives nationwide, it is clear Buhari is not our problem.”
In the past few days warehouses where Covid-19 palliatives are stored have been invaded, vandalised and burnt down. Goods such as Indomie, rice, beans, others have been reportedly carted away by unknown hoodlums.
During Covid-19, many Nigerians have accused the federal government of not distributing palliatives to the poor. FG in several occasions maintained that it has shared all the palliatives to the nooks and crannies of the country.
However, Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project has asked the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission(SERAP) 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.“
