President Buhari & VP Yemi Osinbajo’s Declaration of Assets Report Will be Made Public Within 100 Days!
President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s declared assets is expected to be released to the public after they are verified by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).
Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity, to the President, made this known in a statement on behalf of the President on Saturday, while clarifying speculations that the President and the Vice-President may after all not publicly declare their assets .
The statement reads:
“While such public display of concern is appreciated and valued, it must be said that it is a little precipitate.As required by law, the declaration and submission of documents to the CCB have been made, but there still remains the aspect of verification which the Bureau will have to conduct to authenticate the submissions made to it. In the circumstances, it is only after this verification exercise, and not before, that the declaration can be said to have been made and validated; and only after this, will the details be released to the public.
There is no question at all that the President and the Vice President are committed to public declaration of their assets within the 100 days that they pledged during the presidential campaign.
The President and the Vice President wish to thank Nigerians for their show of concern, and for the confidence they have shown in their leaders’ integrity, as evidenced by the high pedestal of uprightness and expectations on which they have placed them.”
