Outgoing Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, has ordered his Vice, Yemi Osinbajo and all elected and appointed government officials under him to declare their assets.

The President made this known on Friday while receiving his Declaration of Assets Form from Prof. Isah Mohammed, Chairman of the Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB, at the presidential villa, Abuja.
He directed that all outgoing officials, elected and appointed from the Vice President downwards must collect the assets declaration form, fill and return it as he had done.

He noted that no one was excluded from the Constitutional duty of assets declaration.
According to him, “I signed, collected and acknowledged receiving my form. From here, I will ask my bank Manager in Kaduna to show me what has gone in and out of my account. Nobody is excluded from declaring their assets. I expected everyone from the Vice President downwards to follow the system.”

However, Professor Mohammed said compliance by the President in the last eight years and the support he had given to the Bureau had enabled it to achieve 99% compliance by elected and appointed officials.
He also acknowledged the support of the President in the achievement of the digitization of its services and operations thereby helping the organisation to open investigation of cases with greater efficiency.
