President Muhammadu Buhari has dissuaded contractors benefiting from his administration from giving him money.
Instead, Buhari charged the contractors to use the money to support less privileged members of society.
The President made this charge on Friday when he paid a visit to the Emir of Daura, Dr Umar Faruk Umar, per a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu.
Shehu quoted his principal as saying, “I don’t want your cheque. Go and assist our communities” instead of trying to return kickbacks to public officers, including his office.
“We don’t want cheques from anyone or organisation as returns or influence of any kind. Let them remember their Corporate Social Responsibilities.”
