The Presidency has dismissed an online report that the daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari, Zahra Buhari, has secured a job with the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency.

The dismissal was contained in a Facebook statement by the special adviser to the president on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, on Wednesday, February 12, 2020.

While stating that the news is false, Adesina said the publication is untrue, malicious, and meant to cast aspersions at the first family.

“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.

“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 hacking piece, masquerading as a news story.”

The only problem with this statement is that the online platform, Signal, reported a whistleblower report that a daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari had been given a job in the petroleum agency. The source named Zahra as the one employed.

But, Signal, quickly corrected the error in the name of the Buhari daughter with the agency. It is Hadiza, not Zahra.
