The governor visited the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) headquarters in Ibadan over the weekend and submitted a copy of the end-of-tenure assets declaration form, declaring his assets ahead of the start of his second term in office.

Makinde told the reporters that the information about his assets would be made public as soon as possible through his media team. CONTINUE READING>>>

Makinde said, “You are required by law to declare your assets upon taking office and at the end of your tenure.

“So, since one tenure is coming to an end at midnight on Sunday, and by law, I have to declare assets before assuming office for the next tenure.

“As a result, I came to submit my end-of-tenure assets declaration form for the first term and declared assets at the start of the second tenure.

“I am 12% poorer in the last four years because I have not had the opportunity to manage my businesses. I’ve been handling Oyo State matters.”

As expected, this development elicited reactions on Twitter as it was shared by Vanguard on their official handle.

A Twitter user identified as Olawale said, “Because you don’t have time to take care of your business?”

Chika Edward Amaraegbu said, “But you went for re-election; do you want to be poorer?”
