President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, have declared their assets, as required by the Nigerian Constitution.
This was disclosed by the head of President Buhari’s Media Team, Garba Shehu.
Channels TV quotes Shehu as saying in a statement issued on Saturday:“The Code of Conduct Bureau on Friday acknowledged the submission of President Buhari’s and Vice President Osinbajo’s assets declaration form submitted separately on May 28, and signed for by the organisation’s Chairman, Sam Saba. President Buhari’s Declarant ID was given as: ‘President: 000001/2015′”
The figures declared were not made available.
Chapter VI Section 140 of the Constitution states 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.
