Nigerians React As Aisha Buhai Demands 'First Lady' Title

Mrs Aisha Buhari, Nigeria’s first lady has refuted reports and speculations that the Department of State Services (DSS) has released her Aide De Camp (ADC), CSP Sani Baban-Inna.

The Director of Information in the office of Mrs Buhari, Mr Suleiman Haruna, made this revelation in a statement via his social media handle on Thursday in Abuja.

“The officer (Baban-Inna) is being investigated on allegation of corrupt practices, which is a serious offence.

“As such, it is unlikely that the DSS will compromise and release him mid-way without completing the investigation,’’ the statement read.

Baban-Inna is in the custody of the DSS for allegedly collecting N2.5 billion on behalf of the First Lady without her consent.

Naija News recalls that the wife of the President had refuted claims that she used her ADC to collect funds from unsuspecting members of the Public.

“I wish to use this opportunity to inform the general public that I have never sent any of my staff to collect any favours on my behalf or on behalf of my children and will never do so,” she said.

“Baban-Inna has been my ADC since 2016 and has been associated with me ever since,” she said in a statement by her spokesman (Haruna).

She expressed surprise that the initial investigation showed Baba-Inna allegedly used her name for some suspicious activities.

“It was the Nigeria Police Force, being his employer, that arrested him to investigate the allegations levelled against him because the case is within their jurisdiction,” she said.

Aisha advised alleged victims of the scam to recover their money and whatever he took from them from Baban-Inna.

Mrs Buhari therefore warned that she would not condone fraudulent behaviour by any of her staff.

She noted the Buhari administration was voted into office based on trust and confidence of the people to fight corruption, assuring that she will not betray that trust.
