A statement issued on Sunday by its deputy director, Kolawole Oluwadare urged Tinubu “to encourage his Vice-President KashimShettima, ministers, and state Governors to also widely publish their asset declaration forms.

The statement also said, the development would promote public trust and establish a system of transparency, accountability and public participation, Tinubu, and also urged Tinubu to urgently propose a constitutional amendment to include provisions on the creation of asset declaration database to publish Government officials’ asset declaration forms before, during, and after serving in public office.

SERAP, in its statement, indicated that “openness and transparency in the details of asset declaration forms of high-level public officials would strengthen the country’s democracy and promote accountability at all levels of Government.”
