Garba Shehu, President Muhammadu Buhari's spokesman on Thursday reacted to the allegations by Senator Isah Misau that the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Ibrahim Idris gave two SUVs to the wife of the president, Aisha Buhari as gifts. They wrote that they wanted Sienna and Hiace but the IG said they should be given two Sports Utility Vehicles.
But the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, in the tweet, denied the claims saying: "I am still using my personal cars".
The statement said: "Our attention has been drawn to the news being widely circulated, and attributed to a member of the Senate, that two SUVs from the Inspector General of Police were given to the wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Muhammadu Buhari personally". And it is not part of the appropriation. No. NPF 2406D (ii) A Toyota Hiace Bus with Reg. The same day that the ADC wrote, the IG minuted that she should be given two cars. "If you look at the appropriation, there is nowhere they said the First Lady should be given two jeeps", Mr. Misau had told the committee.
Mrs. Buhari on Thursday took to her Twitter handle, @aishambuhari, to comment on the allegation.
In the statement signed by her Director of Information, Suleiman Haruna, Mrs Buhari insisted that she was still using the vehicles allocated to her during the campaigns in 2015. "This officer, who was a former Police ADC to the late former Governor (Diepreye) Alamiesiegha and also served under former President Goodluck Jonathan, is now the Commissioner of Police, Adamawa State".

He coached two more Cy Young winners during that stretch in Felix Hernandez (2010) and Rick Porcello (2016). The Cubs have hired Chili Davis as their hitting coach and Brian Butterfield as their third-base coach.
No further official statement or comment has been made through Mrs. Buhari's office.
The Nigeria Police also had a press conference to send a rejoinder to all the accusations of Senator Isah Hamma Misau against the person and office of IGP.
Misau, however, has refuted that he was indicting Aisha, as he only called the call attention of the committee to "how IGP Idris is unethically dropping names by filing secret documents in court".
I query the motive behind such indiscretion given that the said documents have little or no bearing on the matter of malpractice. "I believe I need to make this clarification".
