In what looks like undermining party supremacy, which President Muhammadu Buhari had preached on the heels of the National Assembly leadership crisis, the president has denied promising to declare his assets publicly during the presidential campaign.
Many Nigerians were expecting Buhari to have announced his assets as his party consistently attacked the previous administration of President Goodluck Jonathan of shielding the details of his assets from citizens.
In a chat with social commentator, Kayode Ogundamisi, Adesina said “You need to get his words right, go and check all that the president said during the campaign, in no place would you see it attributed to him as a person,” Adesina said.
“Now what does the law require? The law requires public officers to declare their assets; he has done that. But his party has a document that says he would do it publicly.
“There is a procedure for that, and the procedure is that you first declare, code of conduct (bureau) would verify and after that, if you want to make it public, the onus lies on you to say release. The procedure has to be followed.
“He has declared, and it is deposited with the code of conduct bureau and they need to verify. Let’s come to that time when code of conduct would say we have completed verification”.
