Following President Muhammadu Buhari’s submission of his completed asset declaration forms to the Code of Conduct Bureau yesterday, the president claimed not to have acquired any new property other than the ones he declared in 2015.
The Presidency disclosed that, “The forms, as signed by the President and sworn to before a Judge of Abuja High Court, showed no significant changes in assets as declared in 2015 by him.
“There are no new houses, no new bank accounts at home and abroad and there are no new shares acquired.”
Recall that President Buhari in 2015, mentioned the assets he had declared at the Code of Conduct Bureau before assuming office.
On the list of assets he declared in September, 2015, Buhari stated that he had N30m in his bank account before he assumed office in May 2019.
He also disclosed ownership of 270 cows, 25 sheep, five horses, birds and economic trees, a plot of land each in Port Harcourt and Kano, farms, an orchard, some cars, five houses in Kaduna, Daura, Kano and Abuja. He added that the Daura houses were made of mud.
Buhari will be inaugurated for a second term today for another four years.
In compliance with the May 28 deadline the CCB set for public officers to declare their assets before the end of their tenure, the chairman of the CCB commended the President for leading by example by declaring his assets in accordance with the law.
