Asset Declaration: PDP Compels Aisha Buhari To Follow Suit

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has hinted that it may soon demand the public declaration of the assets of the wife of President, Aisha Buhari.


This is coming after the declaration of assets by President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

It was contained in a statement made available to the press in Abuja on Friday, September 4, 2015, by the National Publicity Secretary of PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, the party says the assets declared differs from the president’s assets declaration months before his election.

The PDP, while inquiring the subjects 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.

Meanwhile, the President and his deputy had responded to the demand for assets declaration forms by the PDP.
