Buhari asks officials to declare assets: President asks officials to
follow lead
Buhari made this known while speaking in Ghana, where he
added that he had declared his own assets four times previously.

“I recall that in 1975 when 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 Ministry of Justice were brought and every individual
was made to declare his assets.
“So right now, all heads of state and government, governors,
ministers, permanent secretaries will have to declare their assets
because it is a constitutional requirement.
“In Nigeria, it is a constitutional issue and that is why I am
blaming you gentlemen of the press. If you really want to do
investigative journalism, you don’t have to worry me at this
stage; I have declared my assets four times.

“When I was governor in 1975, I declared. After being Minister of
Petroleum and as a member of Supreme Military Council, I
declared. When I was Head of State and now as a President, I
also declared.
“I have declared my assets and all that I have four times, and you
(the media) have the right to go and demand for my declaration.
Instead, I am being harassed.”
