Honorable Member of the Federal house of Representative Dino Melaye wrote on his Facebook page to defend a retired Major General in the Nigerian Army and a former military ruler of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari.
Member of the Federal house of Representative decided to investigate why Muhammadu Buhari couldn't afford APC nomination form because he read online the question a lady asked.
He went to the ministry of Finance where he disclosed that all former Presidents and Head of states actually get 23million naira monthly.
According to Melaye, Buhari wrote a letter to the Minister of Finance to pay him 10% of N23m former Presidents and Head of States do take as salary. So Buhari monthly payment is N2.3m instead of N23m.
Here is his message:
“I read online the question a lady asked. The question is how can Buhari who earns over 300million naira yearly claim that he can not afford to pay 27million naira for the APC presidential form. I became interested and decided to investigate. I went to the ministry of Finance where I discovered that it is true that all former Presidents and Head of states actually get 23million naira monthly. But I found out that General Buhari actually wrote the minister of Finance to reject the 23million monthly pay. He said in his letter that he will only accept 10percent or that amount which is 2.3million and that is what he has been taking. This is just to clear the air.”
Melaye admires Buhari’s integrity, “What a Nigerian! what class of integrity! God please make us men and women of integrity. Amin.”
Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari on October 16, picked the expression of interest and APC N27.5m nomination form. He took bank loan to purchase APC nomination form, because as he said “N27 million is a big sum.”
