President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday received, filled and submitted his second term asset declaration form to the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).

Confirming this in a statement, the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said the President had no new property beyond the assets he declared in 2015 when he began his first term.

“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,” Shehu said.

On what the president filled out in the form Shehu said, “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 him.

“There are no new houses, no new bank accounts at home and abroad and there are no new shares acquired.
