Ministers may not be forced to publicy declare assets

02 November 2015, 12:08

Abuja - Ministers-designate may not be compelled to publicly declare their assets as was the the case of President Muhammadu Buahri and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Vanguard reports.

This is coming on the heels of the denial by a minister-designate, Ibrahim Jibril, that he would not emulate President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in making public his assets declaration documents submitted to the Code of Conduct Bureau.

Jibril and other ministers-designate were quoted as saying they were under no obligation to declare their assets publicly as the president and his deputy did.

Specifically, Jibril was said to have spoken through his media aide as saying it was unnecessary following on the two leaders’ footsteps.

President Buhari and Vice-President Osinbajo had last August made a public declaration of their assets in line with a now contentious pledge given by one of the support groups of their presidential campaign.

The minister-designate said that if President Buhari and Vice President Osinbajo could declare their assets, what would stop him as one of those that will drive the manifesto from declaring his assets too.
