Hanan Buhari, a certified creative photographer and youngest daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari, has incurred the wrath of some Nigerians after she was flown on the presidential jet to attend a special durbar ceremony organized in her honour by the Emir of Bauchi, Rilwanu Adamu, at his palace in Bauchi State.
Miss Buhari’s visit on presidential jet has caused social media storm, with most people condemning the use of the Nigerian Airforce aircraft for “personal use”.
The photography aficionado arrived at Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa International Airport, Bauchi on Thursday, and was received by the First Lady of Bauchi State and other government officials.
It was gathered that the durbar was specially organized to avail the president’s daughter of the opportunity to take photographs of the traditional durbar, Bauchi architecture and other cultural sites in the state.

According to the report, she arrived at Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa International Airport, Bauchi on Thursday, January 9, and was received by the First Lady of Bauchi state and other government officials.
It was gathered that the Durbar was specially organised to avail the president’s daughter of the opportunity to take photographs of the traditional Durbar, Bauchi architecture and other cultural sites in the state.
Reacting to the criticism, the senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, said wife and children of the President Buhari, have the right to use the presidential jet when they want.
Shehu noted that Hanan sought and received approval from her father who in turn informed the National Security Adviser (NSA).
He said: “It’s true that a member of the First family was flown to Bauchi yesterday on a mission duly authorised. It wasn’t an impromptu or improper trip because it followed normal procedure. The Presidency informed the National Security Adviser of the mission who in turn informed the commander of the Presidential Air fleet.
The normal practice in existence for a long time is that the Presidential Air fleet is available to the President and the first family and four others. These four are the vice president, the Senate president, the speaker and any other person(s) authorised by the president.”
