EXPOSED: Multi-million Naira UK Schools Buhari’s Children Attended While He Claimed “Couldn’t Afford Presidential Nomination Form |RN

He explained that though he could not influence the cost, he had to secure a loan from his bankers in Abuja and Kaduna to raise the money.

President Muhammadu Buhari paid over N20 million for his two children, Yusuf and Zahra, who were studying in the United Kingdom universities in 2015, about the time when he declared to Nigerians that he could not afford the All Progressives Congress’ (APC) expression of interest and nomination form.

Findings by SaharaReporters confirmed this, showing how Buhari rode to power on the propaganda that he was an average Nigerian – who could not afford the APC’s N27 million and lived a moderate life.

Having previously run for three presidential elections and failed, Buhari showed his desperate desire to lead Nigeria by contesting again in 2015.

In 2015, he wooed Nigerians with many promises of what his administration would achieve in the areas of employment, security, agriculture among others. 

Buhari had also lamented the high cost of the All Progressives Congress party’s expression of interest and nomination forms which cost N27.5 million as of then.

He explained that though he could not influence the cost, he had to secure a loan from his bankers in Abuja and Kaduna to raise the money.

A report of October 2014 quoted him as saying, “N27 million is a big sum; thankfully I have a personal relationship with the manager of my bank in Kaduna and early this morning, I put an early call (and) I told him that very soon the forms are coming, So, whether I am on red, or green or even black, please honour it, otherwise, I may lose the nomination.

“I was about to go to Kaduna this morning and I told the Chairman (John Odigie-Oyegun) but he said in that case, you better pick your form and keep a straight face. That means there is no excuse.”

Buhari’s position had attracted the sympathy of the Bauchi State Chapter of the Buhari Campaign Organisation which pledged to buy a nomination form for him, to contest the 2015 presidential election on the platform of the APC.

However, checks by SaharaReporters revealed that Buhari’s two children were schooling in the United Kingdom at the time he claimed he had to take a loan for the party’s nomination form.

His only son, Yusuf Buhari, along with her sister, Zahra Buhari, was at the time enrolled in the University of Surrey for master’s degree programmes in Economics and Medical Microbiology respectively.

Checks on tuition fees paid by international students running a master’s degree programme at the institution as of 2020/2021 amounted to £15,800 to £20,500 equivalent to about N4. 5 million and N6 million based on the N288 to £1, which was the exchange rate around the time.

While Zahra’s course of study is currently not available at the institution’s portal, which makes it difficult to project how much she might have paid as fees, the tuition fee for Economics (master’s) for the 2020/2021 academic year amounted to £18,600 (N5. 4 million) for international students.

According to an American professor, John Paden, “All of President Buhari’s children have had extensive education. Several have studied at university and postgraduate levels, including abroad.”

Other children of the president also attended universities outside the country though there is but a short profile of their academic profiles which had excluded the dates they attended the schools for unknown reasons.

Fatima Buhari, who was born on March 7, 1975, got a postgraduate degree from Business Academy, Stratford, United Kingdom.

Following is Nana-Hadiza Buhari who was born on June 23, 1981. She studied at the Essence International School then later moved to Cobham Hall, Kent, United Kingdom where students in Years 7, 8, and 9 pay school fees as high as £10,279 for boarders and £6,804 for day students.

Nana-Hadiza also studied at the University of Buckingham.

Safinatu Buhari, born on October 13, 1983, also had her education at Essence International School and Cobham Hall, Kent, United Kingdom. She furthered her studies at the University of Plymouth, United Kingdom, and at Arden University, United Kingdom.

Halima who was born on October 8, 1990, schooled at the International School, Kaduna, the British School of Lome, and Bellerby’s College, Brighton, United Kingdom. She also attended the University of Leicester, United Kingdom before bagging a degree from Nigeria Law School, Lagos.

With fees running into millions of naira paid to the United Kingdom over the years, both prior to his 2015 campaign and after, the Nigerian President could possibly afford the N27.5 million party nomination and expression of interest forms without drawing public sympathy.

Trump ‘Morally Unfit’ To Be President, Says Former FBI Boss, Comey |RN

“I don’t think he’s medically unfit to be president. I think he’s morally unfit to be president,” he added.

Donald Trump “lies constantly” and is “morally unfit” to be US president, according to former FBI boss James Comey.

The man fired by Mr Trump last year told ABC News: “I don’t buy this stuff about him being mentally incompetent or early stages of dementia.”

The President lashed out at Mr Comey, calling him a “slimeball” in a series of tweets before the US TV interview and labelling him the “WORST FBI director in history, by far”.

He said Mr Comey was lying and is “not smart”.

The former FBI chief appeared to hold nothing back when he got in front of the cameras.

“[He] talks about and treats women like they’re pieces of meat [and] lies constantly about matters big and small,” said Mr Comey.

He also said it was “stunning” to think that Russia could have compromising information on the President, but that he could not discount the possibility.

Mr Comey has kept quiet about his time under Mr Trump for nearly a year, with the interview and his new book, A Higher loyalty, breaking the silence.

The former lawyer also compares the President to one of the mafia bosses he once fought to prosecute, calling his leadership “ego driven and about personal loyalty”.

Mr Comey was sacked in May 2017, with officials accusing him of mishandling the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of email.

Many Democrats blame his decision to reopen the probe – 11 days before the 2016 election – for Mrs Clinton’s shock defeat.

In the interview, Mr Comey said he assumed Mrs Clinton would win.

He told ABC: “I don’t remember spelling it out, but it had to have been, that she’s going to be elected president and if I hide this from the American people, she’ll be illegitimate the moment she’s elected, the moment this comes out.”

Opponents of the President have suggested Mr Comey was dismissed because he was leading the investigation into alleged links between Mr Trump’s campaign team and Russia.

Mr Trump’s letter firing Mr Comey said he was losing his job on the recommendation of the Attorney General and that he was “not able to effectively lead the Bureau”.

Another former FBI director, Robert Mueller, is now in charge of the ongoing Russia-Trump investigation.

His remit now also includes whether the President obstructed justice when he fired Mr Comey.   (SkyNews)
