The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project has told the incoming President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to make a public declaration of his assets.
The group disclosed this in a statement issued by its Deputy Director, Kolawole Oluwadare, on Sunday, May 28, 2023.
Speaking through its deputy director, the group that advised the incoming administration of Bola Tinubu to prioritize the rule of law, media freedom, and efforts to curb corruption, advised the government to fulfil all its electoral promises to Nigerians while campaigning during the election period.
“If your election is upheld by the judiciary, your government can use transparency in asset declarations as a means of promoting public accountability and ending systemic corruption in the country,” the group stated.
