CCB verifying our assets â€“ Buhari, OsinbajoBy Bobricky 11:11 Fri, 04 Sep 2015 Comments
President Muhammadu Buhari and his deputy, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, have said the Code of Conduct Bureau is still verifying their assets forms.
The President and his deputy said this in their reactions to the demand for their forms by the Peoples Democratic Party.
Special Assistant to the President on Media, Mallam Garba Shehu, stated this in a text message he sent to our correspondent in Abuja on Friday.
They said as soon as the verification was over, the forms would be made open to the public.
Shehu said, â€œThe contents of forms as submitted by the President and the Vice President are, as we said in that statement, still being vetted and whenever the process is complete, they will be made public.
â€œPDP doesnâ€™t have shame, neither does it have conscience.
â€œIf the officials did, they would have pressured their leaders, meaning President Goodluck Jonathan and VP Namadi Sambo, to declare their assets on leaving office as the law requires.
â€œNigerians havenâ€™t forgotten that against all entreaties, the then President and his deputy adamantly refused to make any form of disclosure regarding their assets. Now that they are out, they are behaving as if the law does not exist. Is that the party to question this unprecedented step our leaders have taken?
â€œThey have lost all moral right to pontificate for anyone on matters of probity and accountability.â€
