Amina Zakari, whose recent appointment as the head of collation centre for the 2019 general elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has said she isn’t a niece of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has raised a lot of dust since the appointment was announced, noting that Zakari, a princess from Zamfara state, is the nice of the President.
However, in an interview with BBC News Igbo, debunked the allegation saying “I am not his niece, I am not his cousin. I was appointed on this same particular job by Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan in 2010. Prior to that I was appointed an A.S to former president Olusegun Obasanjo, and I did my job perfectly”.
Zakari was born to the late Emir of Kazaure, Hussaini Adamu, on June 23rd, 1960.
