Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to publish his asset declaration form as he concludes his term in May 2023 and thereby, bequeath a legacy of transparency.

It also asked him to encourage Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; Senate President Ahmad Lawan; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, and high-ranking officials of the next administration to follow suit.

According to the Code of Conduct for Public Officers, contained in Part I of the Fifth Schedule to the Nigerian Constitution 1999 (as amended), all public officers are to declare their assets immediately after taking office; at the end of every four years; and at the end of their term in office.
