You’re Wealthy, Your Family Lives Large; You Spent £150,000 Educating Your Daughter, Is That How To Fight Corruption – UK Mail Questions Buhari

One of British newspapers, Mail Online, on Sunday questioned President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption credentials ahead of his arrival in London for a world anti-corruption summit to be hosted by UK’s Prime Minister, David Cameron. The paper said “self-proclaimed ‘People’s President’”, Buhari, may be waging a war against corruption his critics have described as a witch hunt. It wrote that Buhari sends his daughter to a £26,000-a-year English school and that in April, the opposition PDP party unearthed a ticket stub showing Hanan, 16, had flown first-class from London to Nigeria, despite her father’s ban on officials using premium travel. The report added added Buhari had spent £150,000 on educating his daughter Zahra, a Surrey University student. The paper also questioned Buhari’s failure to give a full account of his worth, and pointed out his partial admission of more than £1million in the bank, five houses and two plots of land. Mail Online added: “The presence of Nigeria’s president at David Cameron’s anti-corruption summit this week may surprise many in his nation – which receives vast amounts of UK aid. “Self-proclaimed ‘People’s President’ Muhammadu Buhari began a war on corruption after taking power last year, but critics allege it is a political witch-hunt. “The Government is giving nearly £250million in the coming year to oil-rich Nigeria.. “Supporters say 49 arrests of members of the previous regime show the anti-corruption war is genuine, but opponents say it is politically driven. “Nigeria has the highest-paid government officials in the world but is one of the largest beneficiaries of UK foreign aid. “The president of its senate, Bukola Saraki, is due to face trial on corruption charges after it emerged he has a £6million London property in his wife’s name. “The Nigerian Embassy did not comment”, Mail Online added.

  1. Since when has it become part of corruption for one to spend from his legitimate earnings to educate one’s child or on anything for that matter? The mail missed the point entirely.u guys really need to go back to school on this all important issue.Baba never told anyone that he is a poor man.the point is enjoy your money so long as it is earned legitimately.period.

  2. Enemies of progress are out again.

  3. instead of improving educational system of his country.He prefered paying it to the foregn country.Then who is decieving who in nigeria?

  4. These northerners who always defend buhari should learn to defend him constructively and stop exhibiting ethinic madness at every situation

    Buhari is the most corrupt person in Nigeria but with Backing of UK and US government, he was made a saint. I still can not believe that British politicians will be protecting a man who has no value for life. For example, he supported BOKOHARAM and called them his mislead brothers. Since he took over as President of Nigeria, over 10 thousand people have lost their life mainly the southerners and none Moslems. He declared his assets of $30.000.00 and 150 cows. The same amount of cows he declared 2011,2007 and 2003 and gullible Nigerians believed him.He has the plans to Islamise Nigeria which has stated already by introducing gracing bills. It means his co Fulanis with their cows can choose lands of their choice in any part of Nigeria and it will become theirs forever. By so doing, they will force the land owners out of their land and destroy their crops. They have started it already by sending many southerners to their early grave and none of them has been arrested as Buhari is in support of their atrocities.Presently, Southerners are not allowed to protest on the street but Buhari bothers otherwise known as Fulanis on their killing missions are allowed to carry (AK47) rifle and ammunitions openly.up till this moment, none of the Fulanis murderers is in any prison in Nigeria even the 56 of them arrested for killing about two thousand people in Agatu Benue State have disappeared from police custody.Please, my respected Prime Minister David Cameron, can you make sure that Buhari is arrested and handed over to ICC for his crime against humanity and also be aware that your citizen Nnamdi Kanu is languishing in Nigerian prison for no crime. Even though Court has granted him bail twice, but this blood thirsty jihadist Buhari refused him bail.

    Buhari is confused, only God can save us from his hand. God is above buhari. Just a matter of time God will expose him.
