Buhari and Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo declared their assets publicly on September 3, 2015.
The President made the comment on Monday, September 7, during an official visit to Ghana.
“I recall that in 1975 when late Murtala Mohammed became the Head of State, we were lined up in the corridor – governors, ministers, members of the Supreme Military Council – and officials of Ministry of Justice were brought and every individual was made to declare his assets.”
“So right now, all heads of state and government, governors, ministers, permanent secretaries will have to declare their assets because it is a constitutional requirement.”
Buhari also said that he had declared his assets four times since 1975 when he was a governor.
