An All Progressives Congress (APC) party chieftain, Farouk Aliyu has stated that its, Presidential candidate Bola Tinubu will declare his assets if he wins next year’s election.
Aliyu, a former legislator, stated this on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Tuesday. He stated that as a two-term governor, investigations into Tinubu’s source of wealth and educational background were conducted, but nothing negative was discovered about him.
“Now, if you are coming to public glare – you are looking for an office like that of a president – the people of the country have to ask,” he said.
“But going beyond asking, if he (Tinubu) wins, there would be declarations – he would declare his assets for everybody to see and I assure you that if Tinubu wins the election by the grace of God, he is going to come clean.”
He challenged Nigerians to make public “any information about illegal wealth” belonging to the former Lagos State governor.
“We don’t want anybody to keep it secret. We don’t want anybody to hide,” he said, maintaining that nothing illegal has so far been found on the APC presidential flagbearer.
The former lawmaker stated that the APC will launch its presidential campaign council in the coming days.
“I can confirm to the whole country that by Friday this week, our campaign council will be inaugurated,” he said.
“We just stayed back to see what everyone else was doing,” he explained, adding that “the campaigns will begin immediately.”
