Garba Shehu, senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, says the government did not sponsor the US trip of the daughters of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Shehu said this on Twitter while responding to a question posed by a user, Adetutu Balogun.

Balogun had sought to know if the government sponsored the trip, as well as the purpose of their attendance at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

Some Nigerians, particularly on social media, expressed displeasure after seeing pictures of Halima and Zahra seated next to their mother at a session of UNGA.
