President Buhari and VP Yemi Osinbajo, have been challenged by the Peoples Democratic Party to publicly declare their assets as a way of proving that they are not corrupt.
President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, and the Speaker, House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, were also added to the list of people who need to declare their assets to convince Nigerians.
Diran Odeyemi, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of PDP, made this known via a statement on Friday.
“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.
“We believe laying claim to sainthood is easy as Buhari and others have been doing all along, but Nigerians deserve to see beyond whatever the government forces down their throats. By making public declaration of their assets, Nigerians will be able to see better and judge accordingly.
“By making public their assets, Nigerians will see how many cattle in 2019 had been added to what Buhari had in 2015. Blowing hot and cold at the same time is not the hallmark of a leader with clean hands.”
Odeyemi added that; “We urge Buhari and other top government officials to be more coordinated and exhibit transparency not only in fighting graft but in their dealings with Nigerians, because, no matter how fast lies have moved, in a flight, truth will catch up.”
