President Muhammadu Buhari has, in compliance with the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, submitted his assets declaration forms to the Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB.
This was made known in a statement signed by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the president, which he said is one of the requirements by law before any elected official is sworn in.

The duly completed forms were submitted to the Chairman of the CCB, Professor Mohammed Isa, on behalf of the President by Sarki Abba, Senior Special Assistant, Household and Domestic Affairs.
“The forms, as signed by the President and sworn to before a Judge of Abuja High Court showed no significant changes in assets as declared in 2015 by the President.
“There are no new houses, no new bank accounts at home and abroad and there are no new shares acquired,” Shehu said.
The Chairman of the CCB commended the President for leading by example by declaring his assets in accordance with the law.
