Noting that President Buhari last December declared that he had only N1 million in his account, the PDP wondered how the money suddenly rose to N30 million by May 29 after an expensive campaign. And this is apart from assets in his wife’s name.
Here is the statement:
“All we want is credibility, integrity and sincerity of purpose. We are not questioning how a President, who by December last year, declared that he had only N1 million in his account, could suddenly now list N30 million in the same bank account by May 29, and after an expensive campaign; we are not yet demanding the public declaration of his assets in his wife’s name.
We are not even applauding the multiplication of his cows from 150 to 250 in a space of three months, arising from his dual and conflicting pronouncements on this issue. “What the PDP and discerning Nigerians demand is for Mr. President to always stand by his words and pledge. Mr. President, this is a mere list of your belongings and not public declaration of assets in fulfilment of your covenant with Nigerians.”
Adegboruwa, in a statement, said: “This action of the President, coming after Nigerians have made this demand upon him several months, is rather belated, serving no useful purpose presently. For the assets declaration to make any meaningful impact, it should have been declared voluntarily and without any prompting upon the President, by Nigerians.
“The implication of this is that the President was forced to declare his assets. Furthermore, it was in his covenant with Nigerians that the President made a solemn promise to publicly declare his assets, within the first 100 days of his administration.”
Public officials Statement
‘’Nigerians have been clamouring for Buhari to declare his assets. In the course of the campaigns he promised to declare his assets. It is a welcome. We expect all other public officials to follow their example. ‘’However, my attitude to the war on corruption is that we should place emphasis on blocking the gate.
There is no question about it, President Buhari is a man of integrity and his strongest point is his widely acclaimed anti-corruption stance. We don’t have any problem with the president regarding his position on corruption but we must close the gate, which means devising institutional means of fighting corruption.’’
