President Buhari and Vice President not yet ready for assets verification

The Code of Conduct Bureau has said President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo have not commenced the process of having details of their declared assets verified, ahead of making them public.

The chairman of the code of conduct office, Sam Saba, said the bureau was prepared to commence the verification of assets declared by the president and vice president, but said Bureau was awaiting a convenient time for the two leaders to carry out the exercise.

The bureau said none of two steps used for verifying assets has been implemented in the case of Buhari and Osinbajo, nearly three months since they took office.

According to him, a conference verification involves the examination of the particulars of an asset, while field verification requires physical validation of the listed property.
