President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo have declared their respective assets, as required by the Constitution.
According to the spokesman of Buhari Campaign Organisation, Mallam Garba Shehu, the code of Conduct Bureau had on Friday acknowledged the submission of Buhari’s and Osinbajo’s assets declaration form submitted separately on May 28, and signed by the organisation’s Chairman, Sam Saba.
President Buhari’s Declarant ID was given as: ‘President: 000001/2015’.
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.
“By declaring their assets, President Buhari and Vice President Osinbajo may have not only fulfilled the requirements of the Nigerian Constitution, but also fulfilled the first of their many campaign promises.
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,” Shehu’s statement read in part.
