 It reads in part:

“The declaration made by Buhari cannot be compared to that made by the late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua which till date has been adjudged as a perfect declaration by any Nigerian President.”

The Ekiti PDP also said that Buhari’s declaration “contained many loopholes which no sensible person should be proud of.”

Buhari declared his assets publicly on September 3, and said that every governor and minister is compelled to follow suit.

Fayose however criticized the president’s declaration saying that he is not as poor as he’s claiming to be.
