Okorocha and Oshiomhole refuse to declare assets publicly.

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state and Governor Adams Oshiomole of Edo state,say they will not be following in the footsteps of President Buhari in declaring their assets publicly.

Governor Oshiomhole in particular should be embarrassed by this.With all his screaming and shouting,Oshiomhole cannot declare his assets publicly? Just shows how corruption has totally messed up Nigeria.Why would Oshiomhole be wary of declaring his assets publicly if he had nothing to hide and was transparent? And the
funniest of all was what the aide of Go Okorocha said,he replied he was already a 2 time Governor so does not need to declare his assets! Can you believe these people?Absolutely incredible! Well i hope when the PDP get back some day or if they do,they probe all these lot in a tit for tat.Buhari must be squirming with embarrassment with the utterance of his allies.

Adams Oshiomhole was working with the Labour Congress before he became governor,he was not a rich man then,so if he has suddenly become rich now,he should tell us how that happened.And as you and i know,If Oshiomhole was not basking in Naira Dollars and Pounds,he would not be afraid to declare his assets publicly!
So they all think what Buhari had done was honourabble,but because it was not compulsory,they can't follow his example? Absolutely incredible.Bloody hypocrites!

Speaking with Punch through his chief press secretary Sam Onwuamado, Governor Okorocha said declaration of assets was an individual thing and that no governor is mandated to do so by law..
"This is an individual thing. Governor Okorocha believes he is a second term governor. He is not a new governor that should be declaring assets. Meanwhile there is no law that says governors should declare their assets. When former president Jonathan was in power, who talked about declaration of assets? What president Buhari has done is a good thing but it is not mandatory"he said
On his part, Oshiomole who also spoke through his media aide, Kassim Afegbua, said it was not enshrined in the constitution that it was mandatory for him to declare his assets
"My governor has said while it is constitutional for public office holders to declare their assets making it public is not a matter enshrined in the 1999 constitution. Every public officer is bound to declare but the idea of making it public is not in the constitution"he said.
