Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari may be poorer now than when he was elected in 2015. He made this declaration during a dinner in honour of volunteer supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2019 general election, held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja tonight.
He cited that he was able to deduce this after seeing his asset declaration form in 2015 when he came into power.
In his own word:
“When I looked at his assets declaration form; I was checking it in 2015, I said to him, ‘Mr President, I am so much richer than you, it is an embarrassment.’
“He said, ‘I am only a soldier, you are a big lawyer so you should have more money than me.’ I can tell you that he is perhaps, even poorer than he was in 2015 when I saw his declaration of assets form.”
