The Presidency has denied rumours circulating about Zahra Buhari’s appointment in the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA).
It dubbed the story as “false in every material particular”.
Nigerians had reaction when it was reported that one of the President’s daughters had fraudulently secured employment with the Agency.
Reactiing to the report, the Presidency in a statement signed by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adeshina, said the online medium (Not An24.net) which broke the news was known for fake news.
The statement read: “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.”
