All My Political Appointees Must Declare Their Assets – Buhari

BuhariThe President-elect, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) on Sunday stated that all those seeking political appointments in his administration must declare their assets before taking office and at the end of their tenure in office.

The president-elect stated this during an interview with Sahara TV on Sunday.

He said, “All those that were governors, ministers, permanent secretaries, head of foreign staff and all those with political appointments will have to declare their assets on the assumption of their appointment and definitely with the courts. And once they leave they have to re-declare their assets”.

“This would encourage accountability and reduce corruption”, he added.
