The People Democratic Party has again challenged President Muhammadu Buhari and his Vice professor Yemi Osibanjo (SAN) to prove that they are not corrupt by declaring their assets to Nigerians and the world at large.
The opposition party also challenged the Senate president, Ahmed Lawan and the Speaker, House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila to prove to Nigerians that they are also in agreement to fight corruption by also declaring their asset.
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 their assets openly to allow Nigerians to see further 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 a public declaration of their assets, Nigerians will be able to see better and judge accordingly.
“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 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, the truth will catch up.”
