From Victor Osula, Abuja
The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB), has again reminded Nigeria’s President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Vice President-elect, Kashim Shettima, as well as all Governors-elect, to declare their assets before inauguration on May 29, 2023.
Special Assistant to CCB Chairman, Mustapha Musa, disclosed this at a recent media interaction in Abuja, reminding the elected officers failure to declare their assets before May 29 may jeopardize their swearing in.
Musa said the asset declaration forms had been distributed to all incoming and re-elected public officials in the country.
“As an agency of government, we have already done our work according to the constitutional mandate; we have issued assets declaration forms to the newly elected and returning public officers.
“But, since asset declaration administration is a continuous process, we have started receiving some completed forms from some of them while some are yet to return theirs.
“The constitution is clear on defaulters; hence they should declare before they are sworn in or they face the consequences,” he said.
