Bashir Ahmad, personal assistant on new media to President Muhammadu Buhari, has dismissed rumours claiming that he used the presidential jet for his wedding.


TheCable Lifestyle had earlier reported how Ahmad tied the knot with Naeemah Junaid Bindawa, his lover, in Katsina state, on Friday.

Hours after the occasion, a report had circulated online accusing Buhari of abusing power by deploying the presidential jet for his aide’s wedding.

But in his reaction on Twitter, the presidential aide said the report was not a true picture of what actually happened.


He said contrary to the report, he traveled alongside his friends to Katsina for the wedding by road and also returned to Kano via the same means afterwards.

Ahmad added that he also departed for Abuja with his friends by road when everything concerning the wedding was over.

He said the pictures of himself and his friends taken behind the presidential jet as depicted in the said report was when they visited the airport to receive Buhari’s representatives at the event.


“Bashir Ahmad and his friends traveled to Katsina on Thursday by road, proceeded to Kano after the wedding on Friday and they will leave Kano for Abuja by road after the events. This was when I led my friends to receive President@MBuhari’s representatives at the airport,” he wrote.
