President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, in keeping with their promise to make their assets public within their first 100 days in office, have made known to the public the content of their asset declaration.
In a statement released by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, while the Buhari had a bank balance of N30 million in his only bank account with Union Bank and shares in Berger Paints, Union Bank and Skye Bank, Osinbajo had N90 million, $900, 000 and £19, 000 and shares in MTN Nigeria, Octogenerium Ltd, Windsor Grant Ltd, Tarapolsa, Vistorion Ltd, and Aviva Ltd.
The President’s seven declared houses included two mud houses in Daura, which he inherited from his father and older sister, two houses in Kaduna, one each in Abuja, Kano and Daura. He also had two undeveloped lands in Kano and Port Harcourt.
Buhari’s farm in Daura has an Orchard and a ranch with economic trees while his animals included 270 cattle, 25 sheep, five horses and a variety of birds. He is also said to have several cars, two of which were bought with his savings and others received from the government as a former head of state.
“The rest were donated to him by well-wishers after his jeep was damaged in a Boko Haram bomb attack on his convoy in July 2014,” She added.
The Vice President, who is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, has a law firm, Simmons Cooper, a four-bedroom apartment at the Victoria Garden City, three-bedroom flat in Ikoyi, two-bedroom flat at Redemption Camp, and a mortgaged two-bedroom building in Bedford, England. His vehicles included an Infinity SUV, a Mercedes Benz and a Prado Jeep.
According to Shehu, the Code of Conduct Bureau is yet to vet the declarations but when it does, the documents “will be made public.”
