I have declared my assets four times – Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to criticism trailing the declaration of his assets. The President said the declaration was nothing new to him since he has done it in the past.
He made the revelation on Monday during his one-day official visit to Ghana.
“I recall that in 1975 when late Murtala Mohammed became the Head of State, we were lined up – governors, ministers, members of the Supreme Military Council. Officials of Ministry of Justice were brought and every individual was made to declare his assets.
“All Heads of States and Government, governors, ministers, permanent secretaries have to declare their assets because it is a constitutional requirement.
“I have declared my assets four times. When I was governor in 1975, I declared. After being Minister of Petroleum and as a member of Supreme Military Council, I declared. When I was Head of State and now as a President, I have also declared,” Buhari said.
