Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa has urged Nigerians to be more concerned with the progress of the country than President Muhammadu Buhari’s wealth.

Okowa made the statement on Sunday, September 6, 2015, following Buhari’s public declaration of his assets.

The governor said further, while speaking at the 13-year anniversary of Rock of Ages Christian Assembly, that asset declaration was a personal decison.

Okowa said:


“I don’t comment about asset declaration; assets declaration is personal, the man has declared his asset which is a welcome idea. But his personal wealth and all he has at the moment is not supposed to be the business of Nigerians.”

“The only thing that we should be concerned about is what is going to be his performance in government; that is where we should concentrate on.”


Buhari declared his assets, which include the sum of N30 million in a bank, on September 3.
