A prominent Katsina state chief got a rude shock on Tuesday, September 22, when President Muhammadu Buhari reportedly rejected his trailer of rams sent as Sallah gift to Aso Rock.
According to Newsrescue, the president a native of Katsina was reported to have ordered that the trailer be turned back and returned to the sender.
It was gathered that the chief who sent the rams is known to be a long time friend of President Buhari.
This action also confirms the president’s statement during his inauguration, where he stated that he belonged to everybody and to nobody.
President Buhari has been described by The Washington Post as probably the least corrupt president in Africa.
Meanwhile the president has reportedly approved about N70m for the celebration of this year’s Independence Day commemoration on October 1.
President Buhari, who is said to be under pressure following the dwindling revenues of the country, could only approve the said amount for the Independence celebrations.
