The presidency has on Wednesday dismissed claims that daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari, Zahra, has secured a job with the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency, PPPRA.
A statement signed by a Special Adviser to the president, Femi Adesina, said the story was false in every material particular.
According to the statement, the fake news was shared by an online medium “given particularly to fake news”.
Mr Adesina, however noted that “Zahra, just like any other Nigerian, can work wherever she secures employment.
“The publication is untrue, malicious, and meant to cast aspersions at the First Family, since the tendentious platform claims the job was secured fraudulently,” it said.
The statement, therefore, enjoined the public to ignore “the hack piece, masquerading as a news story”.
