PDP win all the three seats of Senatorial, Federal House of Representatives and State House of Assembly rerun elections
The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, SERAP, has asked an Abuja Federal High Court to order President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and all state governors to publish their assets.
SERAP gave the call in a lawsuit filed before the court, wherein it said the above mentioned should “make public details of their assets, specifically property and income, contained in their asset declaration forms submitted to the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) since assuming office.”
In the suit number FHC/ABJ/CS/65/2020 filed last Friday, SERAP is seeking: “an order for leave to apply for judicial review and an order of mandamus to direct and/or compel President Buhari, Vice-President Osinbajo, 36 state governors and their deputies to make public their summary of assets; disclose whether they have had any reason to review and update their asset declarations submitted to the CCB, and if the declarations have been made as constitutionally and statutorily required.”
President Muhammadu Buhari has reassured the entire northeast of his administration’s commitment to protect lives and property of citizens.
This was made through a Presidential delegation sent to Yola to condole with the Christian Association of Nigeria over the recent killing of two clergymen. Secretary to the Government of Federation who led president Buhari’s delegation to the state on a condolence visit to Christian communities reassured Nigerians that all form of insecurity across the country will soon be over.
