The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to declare their assets publicly.
The main opposition party made the challenge in a statement on Friday by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Diran Odeyemi.
The party also called on Senate President Ahmed Lawan and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila to make public their assets.
The PDP urged top government officials to waive the caveat placed on the Code of Conduct Bureau and make their asset known to Nigerians.
The party noted that if former CJN, Walter Onnoghen could face prosecution for not declaring his asset in full, other top government officials should also submit themselves for public scrutiny by publicly declaring their assets.
“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 the government.
“We believe laying claim to sainthood is easy as President Buhari and others have been doing all along, but Nigerians deserve to see beyond whatever government forces down their throats. By making a public declaration of their assets, Nigerians will be able to see better and judge accordingly,” the statement added.
