The Presidency has dismissed an online report that Zahra Buhari, the daughter of PresidentMuhammadu Buhari, has been recruited by the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency.
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said in a statement on Wednesday Zahra was not employed by the PPPRA.
Adesina said, “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 hack piece, masquerading as a news story.”
Adesina’s statement his coming amidst reports on the social media space that Zahra has secured a job with the PPPRA.
