The cars are valued at about N400m. A close source told journalists on Thursday, July 9, 2015, that he found out about the plan during a briefing by Permanent Secretary, State House, Mr Nebolisa Emodi, of the ministry’s activities on Wednesday.
The source said Buhari was angry and told Emodi that the purchase was unnecessary. Buhari said it’s a waste of scarce resources.
Buhari told the permanent secretary that the cars he copped from Former President, Goodluck Jonathan were good enough for him.
In his words, “I don’t need any new cars. The ones I am using now are just fine.”
Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Gerba Shehu confirmed the report.
