Former President Muhammadu Buhari has submitted his assets declaration form to the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).
The ex-spokesman media aide, Garba Shehu, confirmed the development on his Twitter handle on Saturday.
The development, according to him, was in line with Chapter 6 of the 1999 Constitution which makes it mandatory for all elected public officials to declare their assets on the assumption of office and thereafter.
The ex-president had on May 26 directed individuals that served in his government to declare their assets
The ex-presidential aide revealed that his principal took no loans or recorded liability during his time in office.
He added that the CCB had confirmed the receipt of the former president’s completed forms.
Shehu wrote: “The completed declaration showed that Buhari’s movable assets did not increase, at home in Nigeria or outside and he did not add new bank accounts outside the only one he had in Union Bank, Kaduna.
“He has taken no loans and has no liability. The number of animals in his farm recorded a little decrease due to the number he gave out as gifts in the last four years.”
