Shehu said, “The completed declaration shows that his movable assets did not increase, at home in Nigeria or outside and 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.”

Buhari reportedly obtained copies of his assets declaration form on May 26, three days before he handed over to President Bola Tinubu.

The CCB had charged all outgoing and newly-elected public officials to submit their assets declaration forms by May 29, after which verification of the assets would commence.
