COVID19 Palliatives: Zahra Buhari reshares a post stating that President Buhari is not Nigeria’s problem

In the last few days, Nigerians have discovered various warehouses where the COVID19 palliatives donated by CACOVID were stored and went ahead to loot them.

The palliatives comprising of food items were stored in the warehouses and were supposed to be distributed to the less privileged Nigerians.

Nigerians took to social media to blast the various state governments for keeping the items when they were supposed to have immediately distributed them.

Filmmaker, Masurah Isah, shared a post on her Instagram page where she pointed out that the discovery of the palliatives shows that the President is not the problem of Nigeria.

Zahra Buhari-Indimi who is President Buhari’s daughter seems to be in agreement with Mansurah’s post and so she reposted it on her Instagram story. See below

NEWS Buhari punishing Nigerians – Pastor Giwa attacks president over high cost of COVID-19 test

Senior pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Christ Ministry, Adewale Giwa, on Thursday expressed disappointment over the policies of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Pastor Giwa described the high cost of COVID-19 test in Nigeria as wildly unreasonable.

The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 has allowed only private laboratories to carry out tests on intending travelers abroad.

It’s wildly reported that the COVID-19 test ranges from 50,000 to N75, 000.

Expressing his displeasure, Giwa wondered why Buhari has decided to punish Nigerians in all areas

In a statement he forwarded to DAILY POST, Giwa said: “On electricity, we pay what we don’t use; they decided to also jack up the price of petroleum; we are adapting to it.

“Now, COVID-19 test for Nigerians and travelers is between N75,000 and N50,000. Buhari, tell us what we have done to deserve this punishment.

They are now justifying why they don’t want COVID-19 to disappear in Nigeria. Why must you allow only private laboratories to carry out tests when there are public ones?

What did they use the billions of Naira they spent on COVID-19 for? In America today, without any health insurance, COVID-19 test is free.

“President Buhari and others should know that they have limited time, and the world is watching them
