“I’ll Publish My Bank Account Before Leaving Office” – VP Osinbajo
Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo says he will publish his bank details when he is leaving office.
Osinbajo said this while fielding questions from respondents at a town hall meeting convened by the United Action for Change in Lagos on Saturday.
According to a statement by the UAC, Osinbajo, stated that “the policies of the government are not tainted by any hidden agenda, stressing that at the end of their tenure, Buhari and himself will be ready to present their bank accounts details and assets owned, to convince Nigerians they never abused their positions to get richer.”
“Anybody who can’t explain his wealth must be brought to account. Everyone who has served in public office must account for what they own. This is the change we want Nigerians to support,” he said.
Answering questions on the social security scheme promised some categories of Nigerians, the VP said the government remained committed to a health insurance scheme that would provide coverage for all Nigerians.
He assured that the N5, 000 monthly stipend promised poor Nigerians would soon take off, adding that a list of one million beneficiaries for a start is already being complied across the country.
He pleaded for the understanding of Nigerians over the fuel scarcity across the country, promising that a policy that would provide a final solution would be unveiled in a matter of weeks.
UAC Convener and National Legal Adviser of the APC, Dr. Muiz Banire (SAN), in his opening remarks called for continuous support for the change Nigerians voted for at the 2015 general elections.
He explained that the body was “conceived as a vehicle to engage and sensitise Nigerians on the philosophical and moral significance of change.
