President Buhari reportedly walks out on Minsters in meeting at the presidential villa

In a report by Signal President Muhammadu Buhari allegedly walked out on ministers during a meeting at presidential villa.

The report said the ministers led by youth and sports minister Solomon Dalung had sought the audience of President as the ministers for financial request of N20 million per annum to settle their accommodation problem  but mid-way into the meeting, Mr Buhari President stood up and ‘excused himself’ leaving the ministers dejected and hopeless.

President Buhari rejected the request by the ministers “because his hands are tied by the Remuneration Act, even though he empathises with their situation. They were asking for N20 million per annum for their accommodation. But prior to last week’s meeting, several other options had been proposed, including buying an estate or the FCDA (Federal Capital Development Authority) building one, but these were considered expensive and dropped. The final option was the request for N20 million per annum, because some ministers are squatting in Abuja and the situation is impacting on their jobs,” Signal reported.

He actually said that under Jonathan ministers were given N20 million each for accommodation. When he said that Buhari asked if he mean N20 million for all the ministers and Dalung replied that it was N20 million per person. It was at this point that Buhari stood up and said he was taking his leave and leaving Osinbajo to “sort it out” with them,” an unnamed source was quoted.
