A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Farouk Aliyu has stated that the presidential candidate of the party, Bola Tinubu will declare his assets if he wins next year’s election.
Aliyu, a former lawmaker, stated this on Tuesday while fielding questions on Channels Television’s Politics Today.
He explained that as a two-time governor, investigations about Tinubu’s source of wealth and educational background have been carried out but nothing bad was found about them.
“While people rarely question politicians’ source of wealth, the situation is now different, the APC chieftain added.

“Now, if you are coming to public glare – you are looking for an office like that of a president – the people of the country have to ask,” he said.
“But going beyond asking, if he (Tinubu) wins, there would be declarations – he would declare his assets for everybody to see and I assure you that if Tinubu wins the election by the grace of God, he is going to come clean.”
He challenged Nigerians who have “any information about illegal wealth” belonging to the former Lagos State governor to make it public.
“We don’t want anybody to keep it secret. We don’t want anybody to hide,” he said, maintaining that nothing illegal has so far been found on the APC presidential flagbearer.
