The PDP Media Watchdog has described the recent revelations by the
Code of Conduct Bureau that President Muhammadu Buhari’s assets and
that of his Vice cannot be made public due to some relevant federal laws
that inhibits such publications as treasonable and treachery.
The group made this statements on Saturday June 20 during their weekly
meetings in Abuja and called on President Buhari and Vice President
Osibanjo to immediately make their assets public in order to give weight
to the anti-corruption war of the APC administration.
“We are not surprised to hear that the Code of Conduct Bureau is now
quoting a section of the Constitution to support the refusal of the APC to
honour one of their promises to Nigerians during the campaigns to make
assets of all public officers in their administration public in order to
This is unacceptable and we demand that the assets of Pa. Buhari and his
Vice be made public without any further delay” the group said.
The Watchdog while disagreeing with the Code of conduct Bureau said
that the APC and Pa. Buhari has in the past gave the excuse that the long
delay in making the assets public was because the bureau must verify the
authenticity of what was declared before making them public and while
Nigerians were waiting for the Bureau to make public the verified assets,
The Code of Conduct Bureau is today referring the people to a section of
the federal laws as if the APC and Pa. Buhari were not aware of this
sections before making the promises and accused the APC of lying into
office and lying in governance.
“The attitude and character of this administration has shown that
Nigerians have truly entered into one-chance vehicle, a car which the
occupants will deceive innocent members of the public to enter their and
then rob them of all their belongings.
If this government has any shame left, then, they must make their assets
public as promised” the watchdog said.
The group while concluding urged Nigerians to take note of the various
backward movement of Pa. Buhari and the APC government and said that
the APC administration will make nonsense of their well promoted anti-
corruption war if Pa. Buhari cannot rule by example.
“The war on corruption must begin with Pa. Muhammadu Buhari and the
APC by practicing what they preach and fulfilling all the promises made
to Nigerians during the campaigns.
It is treasonable for the APC to say they will make public the assets of
their public officers and then use code of conduct bureau to frustrate the
actions” the Watchdog concluded.
