“My ministers must declare their assets” – Buhari


The President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday stated that all those seeking political appointments in his administration will be forced to declare their assets before taking office and before leaving. Buhari said 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.
