The Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde has disclosed that he is 10% poorer in the last four years as a governor.
Governor Makinde broke the news to the press on Sunday in Ibadan.
This comes after he submitted his Asset Declaration form at the Code of Conduct Bureau office, situated on State Secretariat, Total Garden Road, on Friday in Ibadan.
Recall that on the assumption of office in 2019, Makinde declared N48 billion worth of assets but four years later, he says he is 10% poorer.
According to a report by PMNews, he assured newsmen that the details would be made known to the public later.
It is also worthy of note that governors must declare their assets at the end of the first tenure, in compliance with Paragraph 11 part one to the five schedule of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“By law, I have to do Declaration of Assets at the end of my first tenure and before assuming office for the next tenure.
“So, I have gone to CCB office to submit my Assets Declaration form at the end of my first tenure and also my assets at the beginning of the second tenure.
“You are all aware of my Assets Declaration for the first tenure. I can tell you that in the last four years, I’m poorer by 10 to 12 per cent. This is because, I have not really have the chance to look after my business.
“We have been looking after Oyo State business; so, I’m not surprised that there were losses a bit here and there, but I’m still okay.”
