Press Release: No Vendetta Against Past Leaders – Presidency

President Buhari
The allegation by demonstrators in Bayelsa State last Thursday that
allowances due to a former President have been stopped and his bank
accounts were frozen is patently untrue.


We have confirmed with the Secretary to the Government of the
Federation (SGF) that the former President and the other past leaders
were paid their allowances up to the second quarter.

The past
leaders have not been paid third quarter allowances but will get their
dues when remittances are received by the SGF from the Ministry of

The National Security Adviser to the President is not aware of this
bank account closure; the DG SSS is unaware of it, the EFCC is unaware

With all of these agencies not being involved, how then could a thing like that happen? In a dream perhaps!

To put it starkly, we believe there is a clear motive for the
demonstration that is different from that which was being canvassed.

President Buhari remains committed to the ideals of
justice and fairness to all irrespective of creed, religion and
political leanings. His administration will not engage in vendetta.
