Buhari-and-Osibajo1

President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi

Osinbajo have declared their assets in line with provisions

of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

This was contained in a statement issued on Saturday by

Buhari’s Head of Media Team, Garba Shehu.

The statement said that the Code of Conduct Bureau on

Friday acknowledged the submission of the two leaders’

assets declaration forms. Though not publicly, they indeed have declared their assets.

The forms said:

“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 fulfilled the requirements of the Nigerian

Constitution, and one the first of their many campaign

promises.
