Buhari’s government will not require ministers to publicly declare assets

Yvonne Williams

The new ministers to be inaugurated soon may not be compelled to publicly declare their assets as President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo did, presidency sources have disclosed.

Many of the ministers-designate were at the weekend wary of the issue as a number of them were miffed when they were asked on the issue.

The minister-designate from Nasarawa, Ibrahim Jibrin, who was the only one that was forthcoming on it, however, pledged to abide by whatever instruction was handed out by the presidency on the issue.

President Buhari and Vice-President Osinbajo had last August made a public declaration of their assets in line with a now contentious pledge given by one of the support groups of their presidential campaign.

That same support group had in their campaign material also affirmed that Buhari, if elected President, would not just make a public declaration of his assets, but would also require his appointees to do same.
