By Sadiq Umar – Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, has denied allegation that she received two Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs) from the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, saying she uses her private vehicles and not official vehicles.

Mrs. Buhari who reacted to allegation by a Bauchi senator, Isah Misau said via her twitter handle that she was still using her personal cars.

Mr. Misau while speaking at the investigative panel at the senate had alleged that the IGP, Idris donated the SUVs to Mrs Buhari even when such vehicles were not captured in the budget.

Mr. said the details of the donation were contained in the documents the police boss submitted to the court in the suit instituted against him by the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, on behalf of the Federal Government.

“I still have some contract papers that the IG himself submitted to the court, where the First Lady through her aide-de-camp. ADC requested a Toyota Hiace and a Sienna jeep. The same day that the ADC wrote, the IG minuted that she should be given two cars. And it is not part of the appropriation. If you look at the appropriation, there is nowhere they said the First Lady should be given two jeeps,” Mr. Misau had told the committee.

“The letter came from the ADC to the wife of the President. The most unfortunate thing is that even in the letter, the ADC wrote that they wanted the vehicles for her ‘private engagements’. They wrote that they wanted Sienna and Hiace but the IG said they should be given two Sports Utility Vehicles. And he supplied the document to the court,” he said.

But the police in a statement on Thursday said the vehicles, which they said were not SUVs, were given to police officers serving as aides to the wife of the President.

Mrs. Buhari on Thursday took to her Twitter handle, @aishambuhari, to comment on the allegation.

“I am still using my personal cars,” she tweeted.

Her comment however neither confirm nor deny the allegation by the lawmaker.
