Buhari, Osinbajo, Saraki assets verified, says CCB
The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) says it has verified the assets of President Muhammadu Buhari; the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo; and the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
In a statement yesterday to debunk a media report captioned “CCB still verifying Buhari, Osinbajo, Saraki, others assets”, which it said was published on April 30; the CCB said it has verified the assets of the country’s first three citizens.
The statement signed yesterday by the Assistant Director and Head of Media in the CCB, Mr. Mohammed Idris reads: “The Bureau wishes to inform the general public that it has since concluded the verification of assets declared by those mentioned in the said publication.
“Therefore, the said publication is another trick to misinform the public so as to undermine the ongoing trials of cases of false declaration of assets before the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
“It could be observed that since the inception of the present administration under President Muhammadu Buhari, the rate of compliance by public officials in responding to assets declaration has greatly increased.
“The Bureau will like to use this medium to appeal to those who are yet to declare their assets to visit the head office at No 23, Halle Selassie Street, Asokoro, Abuja to collect, fill and submit same to the office.”
