Zahra Buhari-Indimi, daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari, has said that the discovery of COVID-19 palliatives kept in various warehouses across the country is cogent proof that her father is not the nation’s problem. 

President Muhammadu Buhari has been accused in recent times, as the cause of the economic decline compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

His daughter, Zahrab Buhari has said that the discovery of the COVID-19 palliatives stored in warehouses across several states gives has proved the fact that her father is concerned about the welfare of his people.

On her Instagram story on Sunday, 24 October, Zahra said, “Now that people confirmed that Buhari distributed enough palliatives nationwide, it is clear Buhari is not our problem.”

This comment follows several reports that show many warehouses have been looted by thousands of Nigerians in different states.

A large number of the warehouses looted contained COVID-19 palliatives including food items donated by the private sector-led Coalition Against COVID-19.

Meanwhile, some of these items were also discovered in the houses of some politicians which enraged many who believed it is an act of wickedness to hoard relief items while the masses stayed hungry.

As a result of this rage, looting of warehouses and homes of politicians began to take place across Nigeria in the last few days.

The looting began with one discovery in Lagos but has rapidly spread to other places and as of Monday, 26 October, about 11 states including Abuja have recorded such events.
