President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said his principal will not declare his assets publicly.

Adesina stated this on Monday, when he made an appearance on Channels Television.

According to him, no law mandates the president to do so in his second term.

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) had asked Buhari, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and all state governors to declare their assets publicly in seven days.

“The president will do what the law requires of him and I can say for a fact that the president has declared his assets.

“Declaring that publicly is not in our law but voluntary. Therefore, he cannot be compelled to do so.

“If FOI Act is invoked, it will be left with the Code of Conduct Bureau to release such information. The president has declared and already deposited the documents to them. So, it’s left to them to make such a decision,” Adesina said.
