APC’s Shehu Sani declares his assets

-

- Advertisment -

A member of the Senate, and All Progressives Congress party chieftain, Shehu Sani, has said he is worth twenty-two million naira and has several houses and cars.

Sani who represents the central Kaduna constituency in the Senate, became the first sitting member of the legislature to declare his assets publicly, following President Muhammadu Buhari’s example of transparency and accountability.

Sani, who heads the Civil Rights Congress lobby group, and was jailed for pro-democracy activities by former military ruler Sani Abacha, said his decision was prompted by Buhari’s “moral standard” for more openness in public life.

Buhari last week declared he had no foreign bank accounts or oil concessions, owned five houses but only one hundred and fifty-one thousand dollars at a local bank.

Under Nigerian law, it is mandatory for the president, the vice- president, state governors and their deputies to declare their assets when they assume office and afterwards.

Other political appointees should also declare their assets but not mandatory to make them public.
