Buhari very strict on money issues-Osinbajo

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari is very strict on money matters.

Osinbajo disclosed this at the Old Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Thursday at the presentation of "The Essentials of Beauty Therapy" written by the wife of the president, Hajiya Aisha Muhammadu Buhari.

The vice president said Mrs Buhari should not expect large donations from him and the president as they were still receiving half salaries.

Osinbajo, who noted that he represented Buhari at the event, said he (the vice president) was pleased to be associated with the presentation of the book.

"The president and I are on half salaries. The president is very strict on money issues. So, don't expect me to make a large donation,", he said.

He noted that the day commemorated the second anniversary of the abduction of the over 200 Chibok girls, assuring that they were still alive and would be rescued.

The vice president, who was the special guest of honour at the event, stated that if Mrs Buhari had not gone to school, she would not have had the opportunity to impact on others.

Mrs Buhari said the proceeds from the launch would be used to cater for victims of insurgency and mal-nourished children in internally displaced persons camps.

Earlier, the chairman of the occasion, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, represented by his wife, Senator Oluremi, commended support for victims of insurgency.

Tinubu lauded Mrs Buhari for her effort and urged generous donations, noting that the proceeds from the book launch was  for the rebuilding in the northeast.

The book, reviewed by Dr Vivian Oputa,  is designed as a workbook for the students, practitioners, tutors and provides information relevant to their specific needs in simple-to-understand language.

Contents are based around the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) Vocational Enterprise Institutions National Innovation Diploma in Cosmetology and Beauty Therapy international syllabus.

The event was attended by Secretary to the Government of the Federation Babachir David Lawal, Head of Civil Service of the Federation Mrs Winifred Oyo-Ita, Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello, Emir of Birnin Gwari Mallam Zubairu Jibril Mai Gwari II, Pastor Tunde Babare, former Cross River State Governor Donald Duke, ministers, among others.
