The PDP Media Watchdog has called on President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo to declare their assets publicly.

The group made the call following revelations by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) that it could not reveal the assets as it was prevented from doing so by federal law.

The PDP Media Watchdog made the demand on Saturday, June 20, 2015, via a statement released by one Tunde Lawal.

It reads:

“We are not surprised to hear that the Code of Conduct Bureau is now quoting a section of the Constitution to support the refusal of the APC to honour one of their promises to Nigerians during the campaigns to make assets of all public officers in their administration public in order to curtail corruption. This is unacceptable and we demand that the assets of Pa. Buhari and his Vice be made public without any further delay.”

“The attitude and character of this administration has shown that Nigerians have truly entered into one-chance vehicle, a car which the occupants will deceive innocent members of the public to enter their and then rob them of all their belongings. If this government has any shame left, then, they must make their assets public as promised.”

“The war on corruption must begin with Pa. Muhammadu Buhari and the APC by practicing what they preach and fulfilling all the promises made to Nigerians during the campaigns. It is treasonable for the APC to say they will make public the assets of their public officers and then use code of conduct bureau to frustrate the actions.”

The group had earlier called on Buhari to resign after the President said that old age would affect his performance in office.

The PDP Media Watchdog and its statements have however been disowned by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
