REVEALED: Buhari, Osinbajo’s assets to be released after verification by CCB

President Muhammadu Buhari says in fulfilment of one of their
campaign promises, his declared assets and those of Vice President Yemi
Osinbajo will be released to the public upon the completion of their
verification by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).
It is hoped that this process will be completed before the expiry of
the 100-day deadline within which they said they would do this.

The Senior Special Assistant, SSA (Media and Publicity), Mal. Garba
Shehu who announced this in a statement on behalf of the President on
Saturday, 6 June, said “the duly completed forms by both the President
and the Vice President were submitted to the CCB on March 28th, a clear
day ahead of their inauguration.”

He said this statement was warranted by the need to clarify some
suggestions that the President and the Vice-President may not, after
all, declare their assets publicly.

“While such public display of concern is appreciated and valued, it must be said that it is a little precipitate.

“As required by law, the declaration and submission of documents to
the CCB have been made, but there still remains the aspect of
verification which the Bureau will have to conduct to authenticate the
submissions made to it.

“In the circumstances, it is only after this verification exercise,
and not before, that the declaration can be said to have been made and
validated; and only after this, will the details be released to the

“There is no question at all that the President and the Vice
President are committed to public declaration of their assets within the
100 days that they pledged during the presidential campaign.

“The President and the Vice President wish to thank Nigerians for
their show of concern, and for the confidence they have shown in their
leaders’ integrity, as evidenced by the high pedestal of uprightness and
expectations on which they have placed them.”
