Buhari, Osinbajo Declare Assets

President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo have both declared their assets in line with the provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. This information was contained in a statement issued by the president’s Head of Media Team, Garba Shehu on Saturday. According to the statement, the forms were submitted separately on May 28.
The statement reads, “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, both President Muhammadu Buhari and his deputy have not only fulfilled the constitutional requirement but have also met one of their many promises to Nigerians. It will be recalled that the President during his campaign pledged to make his assets public once he is voted into power.
