Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress have said they will not follow the example laid by President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo in declaring their assets publicly.
According to source, the governors said it is.....
not compulsory for them to declare their assets publicly and that they would not be pressured to follow the president’s action.
According to them, there is no law mandating the governors to publicly state their worth in terms of property and cash.
Buhari and Osinbajo last week made a public declaration of their assets with the former stating that he had declared his assets four times since 1975.
The President had said, “I recall that in 1975 when the late Murtala Mohammed became the Head of State, we were lined up in the corridor – governors, ministers, members of the Supreme Military Council – and officials of the Ministry of Justice were brought and every individual was made to declare his assets.
