Osinbajo made this disclosure on Thursday night when he hosted to a dinner volunteers, who canvassed for votes for the All Progressives Congress, APC during the campaigns in the general election, at the Old Banquet Hall, Presidential Villa.

The vice president said he sparked the conversation with Buhari saying, “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.”

Osinbajo quoted the President as responding: ‘I am only a soldier, you are a big lawyer so you should have more money than me,’ adding, “I can tell you that he is perhaps; even poorer than he was in 2015 when I saw his declaration of assets form.”
