Buhari only spent N20.5m on ear infection - Presidency

19 September 2016, 07:28

Abuja - The Presidency has denied allegations that President Muhammadu Buhari spent £6m on treatment for an ear infection in the United Kingdom.

According to Naij, Mallam Garba Shehu, Buhari's special assistant on media and publicity, made the Presidency's position known via his Facebook page, where he claimed that Buhari only spent N20.5 million on treatment.

“For the records, the administration advanced a higher sum, but the President’s doctor returned the balance to the treasury.

“Indeed, it’s a New Day, and President Buhari’s change mantra is real. Let no one confuse my fellow countrymen and women,” Shehu's post read in part.

The development follows on from allegations leveraged against Buhari by Professor Farooq Kperogi.

In addition to lambasting Kperogi, Shehu went further to take a swipe at former First Lady Patience Jonathan following statements that claimed that $15 million found in her bank accounts had been set aside for medical bills.

“The story reads like an incredible tale by moonlight that belongs to a different era, which fortunately is now history. That’s when a fortunate lady saved $15m for medical treatment!” exclaimed Shehu.
