The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has mandated President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice- President Yemi Osinbajo to as a matter of urgency publicly declare their assets to prove that they are leading the country by example.
The party made this call via a statement by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary Diran Odeyemi.
He said Buhari and Osinbajo should prove to Nigerians that they are not corrupt before they continue to go after corrupt public officials.
The main opposition party also asked Senate President Ahmad Lawan and Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the house of representatives, to make public their assets in other to convince Nigerians that they are partners in the fight against corruption.
“We are of the opinion that President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo, President of the Senate Ahmed Lawan and Speaker, House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila should declare openly their assets to allow Nigerians to further see how much wealth they have acquired since joining government,” the statement read.
However, the CCB said it could not disclose the assets on the grounds of invasion of privacy.
