'I stopped collecting allowances paid to former Heads of State when I assumed office in May 2015' - Buhari

President Buhari yesterday said he stopped collecting his allowances as a former head of state immediately after he assumed office as President on May 29th 2015. In a statement released by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Shehu Garba on twitter, President Buhari also stated that he never collected cars, calendars and diaries from the Nigerian Army that were being distributed to former Heads of State. Read the statement below ...


"The President has never received pension from the army or car as had gone to former Commanders-in-Chief. After his overthrow, they didn't remember him even in the annual distribution of diaries or calendars. If anyone is laying his/her hand on any such payment, they should face criminal investigation. President Buhari stopped collecting allowances paid to former Heads of State the moment he took office as elected President last year. This is verifiable from the the SGF's office. Since his overthrow as Military ruler, the army never instituted a pension for him.
The army is known to supply cars to former heads of the army. President Buhari never got any of that. On the other hand, there is a directorate in the SGF's office paying allowances to all ex-Heads of State. This is not pension. President Buhari stopped collecting this from last year. The cars he got came from the former President through the ONSA. This was after the bomb attack on his convoy in Kaduna. Before this time, the presidency did not supply cars to him as they did the formers Heads of State. Please be guided. Thank you".
