Muhammadu Buhari.

The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has again fueled allegations of nepotism after it emerged that the President quietly appointed his son-in-law, Junaid Abdullahi, as the head of Nigeria’s Border Communities Development Agency recently.

According to Premium Times, Abdullahi was married to President Buhari’s first daughter, Zulaihat, who passed away in 2012 from complications developed during childbirth at the age of 40.

The retired army captain resumed duties on October 18 without fanfare, taking over from Ummai Idakwo, the former director of the agency.


According to a government source, the appointment was likely hushed in order to save the President from accusations of nepotism.

President Buhari has been plagued with accusations of nepotism since 2015 from critics who believe his appointments were lopsided.

Following this recent revelation, it remain to be seen how the re-election campaign of President Buhari in the 2019 elections will be affected.
