APC USA supports asset declaration

14 September 2015, 08:57Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - Public officials have been urged to emulate President Muhammadu Buhari and his Deputy, Yemi Osinbajo, by declaring their assets.

The call came from the All Progressives Congress United States Secretariat, who hailed the two leaders for the initiative.

“Unknown to President Buhari his asset declaration will bring about his uprightness to the face of the world, most especially at his recent visit to Ghana, Ghanaians carried post cards, asking their President and Vice President to Declare their assets Publicly,” said Francis John, Coordinator of the USA International Secretariat.

“Beside, President Buhari gradually becoming a legend–exemplary leader in the mist of surpluses, requires all stakeholders to follow suit. APC USA International Secretariat is hereby calling on Public Office Holders to emulate Buhari, Osibanjo and others to declare assets on or before September 30th,” John added.

John said with the President and Vice President declaring assets, it was an early warning sign that APC was set to fix Nigeria on a clean sleet.  

“We already know why perpetrators are finding it difficult to declare their assets: they are not patriotic and selfish, and still in their slumber. With good development in place and transparency playing a major role, there’s no reason why such suckers cannot come forward; declare their assets while in/out of office and do everything humanly possible to refund ill-gotten wealth, apologize and move on.”

He urged leaders not to wait until they were caught and disgraced.

John said the National Assembly must incorporate into the constitution, commensurate authority and enforcement policies to recoup money allegedly stashed abroad.

“We encourage Mr. President to use all means available him to recuperate funds.”
