First civilian Governor of old Kaduna State, Alhaji Balarabe Musa said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s asset declaration showed that the president is a wealthy man and can no longer pretend to be poor.
“Before the last election, Buhari had given us the erroneous impression that he was a poor man, requiring bank loans to buy nomination form and run his campaigns but now he has shown that he has cash of N30 million, huge investments in companies and banks and farm assets.
“By this declaration, it is clear that Buhari is one of the wealthy and influential Nigerians, who wield enormous power. He can therefore, no longer pretend to be among the poor masses and I doubt if he can still effect the change he promised the poor. We are therefore, waiting and watching to see the expected change,” Musa said.
President Buhari’s aide Garba Shehu had disclosed that from the documents filed before the Code of Conduct Bureau by President Buhari, the former head of State had just N30 million in his one and only account with Union Bank.
