President Muhammadu Buhari’s Personal Assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie has claimed that the president’s only source of livelihood is his salary.
Onuchie said this while giving details on the recent order by President Buhari that the second batch of the Paris club refund be released to state governors.
The presidential aide explained that the release of the Paris club refund was aimed at alleviating the sufferings of Nigerians.
Onochie is of the position that the president is indeed bothered about sufferings in the country, adding that he (Buhari) has never been involved in fraudulent acts to enrich himself.
“Our President Muhammadu Buhari is not a businessman. He has never been involved in doing business,” Onochie wrote on her Facebook page.
“He has never been involved in sharp practices to unfairly line his pockets, all his life.
“He has always worked in areas where he earned salaries. That’s how he managed his family finances. Salaries.
“So he can never understand how families are expected to survive these harsh economic realities when they go month by month, without their salaries.
“President Buhari has run out of patience with Governors who owe salaries and has ordered CBN, Finance Ministry to release the Paris Club refunds to states immediately.”
“Nigerians in the states where salaries are owed must become active citizens by insisting that their salaries be paid.
“They must camp in front of the government houses, peacefully till their salaries are fully paid.
“Enough of this taking Nigerians for a ride. Let’s stop making excuses for those who are standing on our heads,” she added.
