The Peoples Democratic Party has challenged President Buhari and
Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to publicly declare their assets to prove
to Nigerians and the world that they are not corrupt.

The main opposition party also asked the President of the Senate,
Ahmed Lawan, and the Speaker, House of Representatives, Femi
Gbajabiamila, to make public their assets to convince Nigerians.

 The PDP Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Diran Odeyemi, in a statement on Friday said,

“We are of the opinion that President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice
President Yemi Osinbajo, President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, and
Speaker, House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, should declare
openly their assets to allow Nigerians to further see how much wealth
they have acquired since joining government.

“We believe laying claim to sainthood is easy as Buhari and others
have been doing all along, but Nigerians deserve to see beyond whatever
the government forces down their throats. By making public declaration
of their assets, Nigerians will be able to see better and judge

“By making public their assets, Nigerians will see how many cattle in
2019 had been added to what Buhari had in 2015. Blowing hot and cold at
the same time is not the hallmark of a leader with clean hands.”

He warned that should Buhari and others fail to make public
declaration of their assets, further aspersions would be cast on the
anti-graft efforts of the present administration. He alleged that rather
than build on the innovations introduced by the PDP administrations to
end graft, Buhari appeared ”directionless and uncoordinated to stop
corruption in the country.  ”

He said, “We urge Buhari and other top government officials to be
more coordinated and exhibit transparency not only in fighting graft but
in their dealings with Nigerians, because, no matter how fast lies have
moved, in a flight, truth will catch up.”
