The Presidency on Saturday said Nigeria’s military hierarchy treated President Muhammadu Buhari bad during the regime of fomer President Goodluck Jonathan. The Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Mr. Garba Shehu, in a Facebook post while reacting to online criticisms against Buhari for receiving some vehicles from the embattled former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, stated that the President was entitled to what he received. "Cars are just a few in a litany of entitlements written in that law, although it is contestable to say that General Buhari had been given his due entitlements by successive administrations as provided thereunder. Regime after regime treated him as if he was not a former Head of State.
"The military in particular treated him so badly that its leaders kept silent when the PDP charged that he didn’t have WAEC papers. One shameless Army Records officer said the former Head of State had no records at all under their system," Shehu stated. According to Shehu, Buhari move around without a full complement of armed guards from the Army until the April bomb attack on his convoy.
