Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo says President Muhammadu Buhari may be “poorer” now than when he was elected in 2015.

Osinbajo said this at a dinner in honour of volunteer supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC), at the presidential villa, Abuja.

The vice-president recounted how he saw Buhari’s assets declaration form in 2015.

“When I looked at his assets declaration form, I was checking it in 2015, I said to him, ‘Mr President, I am so much richer than you, it is an embarrassment’,” he said to which Buhari responded:  “I am only a soldier, you are a big lawyer, so you should have more money than me.”

“I can tell you that he is perhaps even poorer than he was in 2015 when I saw his declaration of assets form,” Osinbajo added.

The vice-president also used the occasion to solicit votes for the APC in the supplementary elections scheduled for March 23, 2019.

“We are still not done with the elections. On the 23rd of March, we still have some outstanding states and as you know we are re-running in about six states,” said Osinbajo.

“And all of the efforts we need to put into those six states, we still need to do. We can’t afford to slack off and say the job is done; we still have some things to do.”
