President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday was handed his asset declaration form by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) and he advised them to keep his asset declaration form safe because he believes corrupt politicians will fight back after he must have left office using it as an instrument.
He made the assertion when he, and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo were handed assets declaration forms for their second term in office at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
President Buhari said: “I am very pleased that you are here, I assure you I will quickly fill this form and dispatched it back to you so that at the end of 2023, I believe there are a lot of people that will like to take it back on me.
“So please, make sure you keep it safely because there are people who believed they shouldn’t be questioned which they are being questioned and some of them are already in trouble.
“I expect them to fight back and this is one of the instruments. So I hope you will keep it.”
“I have never met you before. I thank you for accepting to be in this very important institution and I thank you very much for serving me my forms which I must fill constitutionally before my second term of office.
“It is only institutions like you that will bail us out from the efforts that we have been making to make sure that people in public office do not abuse that public office and that those who come in and those that are leaving certain positions make sure that they hold the integrity of the office and of the country generally.”
