Prof. Farooq Kperogi said that President Muhammadu Buhari spent £6m for his ear treatment for an ear infection in the United Kingdom.
But Mallam Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity has debunked the news on his facebook page by saying that President Muhammadu Buhari used less than £50,000 which is N20.5m
“The disclosure on Prof. Farooq Kperogi’s wall that President Muhammadu Buhari’s ear treatment in the United Kingdom cost a whopping £6m must have shocked many of the respected scholar’s followers.
“I’m prepared to share documents with Farooq, one of the brightest ever produced from the Bayero University Kano that the whole treatment, including a follow-up visit by a specialist to Nigeria didn’t cost £50,000.
“For the records, the administration advanced a higher sum, but the President’s doctor returned the balance to the treasury. “Indeed, it’s a New Day, and President Buhari’s change mantra is real. Let no one confuse my fellow countrymen and women.”
