Breaking!!! President Buhari and Vice President Osinbajo declare their assets.


President Muhammadu Buhari and his vice, Yemi Osinbajo, have reportedly fulfilled their first promise as they both have declared their assets. According to reports, the two officials submitted their declarations to the Code of Conduct Bureau 24 hours before the inauguration ceremony held on May 29. Mallam Garba Shehu, Buhari’s media aide, confirmed the development, saying that the Bureau had acknowledged the forms’ receipt.

“The Nigerian Constitution states in Chapter VI Section 140, that a person elected to the office of President shall not begin to perform the functions of that office until he has declared his assets and liabilities as prescribed in the Constitution.

“While seeking election into the highest office in the land, the president had promised Nigerians that he would publicly declare his assets as soon as he took over government.”However the contents of the declarations has not been provided.

Reports states with reference to expert opinion that Buhari has not done anything spectacular, because the details of the document were not made public.
During his electoral campaign, the APC candidate hit the headlines by making a sensational promise. “I pledge to publicly declare my assets and liabilities, encourage all my appointees to publicity declare their assets and liabilities as a pre-condition for appointment,” Buhari said.

It should be noted that Nigeria’s former president, Goodluck Jonathan, last year refused to declare his assets, insisting that he did so while deputy to the late Musa Yar’Adua. It was also reported last week that Jonathan and Sambo had been ordered to submit their declarations within 30 days.
