The PDP, while questioning the contents of the list released by the president hinted that it was “not yet demanding the public declaration of his assets in his wife’s name.”

Metuh recalled that the president in his own words had told Nigerians that, “I pledge to publicly declare my assets and liability and also encourage my political appointees to publicly declare their assets and liability.”

“All we want is credibility, integrity and sincerity of purpose. We are not questioning how a president, who by December last year, declared that he had only N1 million in his account, could suddenly now list N30 million in the same bank account by May 29, and after an expensive campaign; we are not yet demanding the public declaration of his assets in his wife’s name,' the statement reads in part.
