Dr. Dakuku Peterside, governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Rivers State has commended President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo for declaring their assets in line with constitutional provisions for public office holders.
Peterside who spoke in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital said the president and the vice president’s actions are consistent with the philosophy of their party, the All Progressives Congress.
The former federal lawmaker also praised the duo for setting worthy examples that are not only unprecedented but also definitive of their agenda in public office.
“These are indeed interesting times in Nigeria. In just one hundred days in office, we are already seeing signs and manifestations of better days ahead.
“This asset declaration, certainly has rekindled hope, even in the minds of some of our country men and women who had lost hope in government and its officials. It is therefore gratifying to note that Nigerians across zones, class, age and even political affiliations have commended this move. This asset declaration, no doubt, has set the tone in very unmistakable terms, on what to expect in the coming years.
‘I am very confident that the APC government will not disappoint Nigerians who voted massively for the on-going change that is sweeping across the nation. Those who voted against impunity, corruption and incompetence are already seeing in very concrete terms, the dividends of their votes at the last general elections.
“I therefore wish to use this medium to call on Nigerians to continue to lend their support to this government as it continues to demonstrate accountability and vision in its match towards a new Nigeria”.
