President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that all outgoing officials, elected and appointed – from the Vice President downward – must collect the assets declaration form, fill and return it as he has done.

He said that his strict adherence to the constitutional requirement of asset declaration before and after taking office is aimed at strengthening best practices, raising moral standards in public service, helping to build integrity and combating corruption.

Upon collecting his form from the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Bureau, Prof. Isah Mohammed in Abuja on Friday, President Buhari said no one is excluded from the constitutional duty of asset declaration.

This was disclosed in a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu.

“I signed, collected and acknowledged receiving my form. From here, I will ask my bank manager in Kaduna to show me what has gone in and out of my account. Nobody is excluded from declaring their assets. I expected everyone from the Vice President downwards to follow the system”, President Buhari said.
