Minister Denies Face Off With Presidency...

The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development has refuted claims that the Minister, Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farouq, was reprimanded by the Presidency.

Mrs. Rhoda Ishaku Illiya, Assistant Director of Information in the ministry, said this in a statement on Friday in Abuja while reacting to online reports alleging that Farouq was reprimanded by the presidency.

She stressed that at no time had the Presidency reprimanded the Minister for “excessive use of power and employment of staff beyond the financial capacity of the Ministry”.

The Minister has at no point employed any support staff, as employment in the Federal Civil Service is guided by laid down rules and procedures and cannot be carried out at the instance of the Minister.

“The staff of the Ministry to date including the Minister’s staff were deployed from other MDA’s with their salaries and emoluments still domiciled in those MDAs.

“The Minister has at no point stopped payment for the Home Grown School Feeding Programme. It is pertinent to state that the Minister has approved payment for the programme up to the 31st of January 2020.

“The Ministry wishes to reassure the general public that all decisions taken by the Minister and Management of the Ministry are guided by extant rules and regulations.

“We appeal to media practitioners to ensure that they are guided by the ethics of their profession and always verify stories before going public with them.

“They should also place public interest above other interests in the discharge of their duties,” she said.

She called on Nigerians not to be distracted by unfounded stories aimed at distracting the Minister and the present administration from addressing poverty, creating wealth and entrenching inclusion in the country

    1. You that diverted Dabino meant for IDPs donated by Saudi Arabia Govt to Nigeria ko?

      Go and read more about this woman on Farook Kperogis Blog or page on FB

  2. All this counter argument are nonsensical and unnecessary at a time like this. My heart weeps for Nigeria on how terribly bad things has degenerated into. Just recently, eleven Christians were beheaded and recorded in which ISIS have claimed responsibility. Where is this country heading to? We have lost it as a country. The complicity of this government in the fight against terrorist and herders calls for a grave concern. Will Nigeria ever be redeemed?

  3. Is she not the one they claimed was getting married to the President?

  4. They should all shift joor. This is Baba's alleged 2nd wife o. They just want to distract Nigerians.

  5. Their business 🚶‍♀️🚶‍♀️🚶‍♀️

  6. As marriage no happen again, she and Buhari are now fighting. But Aisha strong o, reclaimed her bubu like the speed of light! 😂

  7. This is damage control.
    Pure and simple.
