The Presidency has reacted to a viral Facebook post purportedly by Zahra Buhari, the President’s daughter.
The Faebook page with the name, Zahra Buhari recently featured a post calling some Nigerians ‘senseless’ for criticizing the President.
A picture of President Buhari, with snowflakes all over him, and being welcomed to a foreign country was used, alongside this message:
“Children of God, here is a 75 years old man walking in the snow without cardigan just to rescue the battered economic status of Nigeria and some of you senseless people feel he travels too much, as if he travels for partying or merry making.
“God bless Nigeria. Please share…”
“The Presidency hereby repudiates the Facebook account, as it does not belong to Zahra. Members of the public are urged to be wary, and see through the intentions of those behind the fakery. They seek to attract odium to the first family, and also do not mean well for our country, Femi Adesina Special Adviser to the President on Media and publicity said in a statement.
He said, “Merchants of mischief have taken their antics against the first family further by creating a fake Facebook account in the name of Zahra, President Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter.
The fake account, conspicuously different from the authentic one, was used to post a message on April 17, 2018, at 9.07 a.m.
