The Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB , has ordered the designated ministers to declare their assets.
The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) on Saturday directed all ministers-designate to declare their assets before inauguration to avoid being faced with the wrath of the law.
The move by CCB is to verify the claims to assets, including land registry, bank accounts and companies submitted by the new ministers.
Arrangements have been concluded by the National Intelligence Agency to further check the assets and accounts of the appointed ministers abroad.
Prof. Muhammed Isah, the CCB Chairman, while addressing newsmen, noted that no minister would be inaugurated without declaring their assets, adding that the agency is working with the permanent secretary’s cabinet office to ensure the incoming ministers do the needful.
“It is legally compulsory for the ministers-designate to declare their assets.”
“If they do not declare their assets, they cannot be inaugurated by President Muhammadu Buhari. That is the most appropriate thing. We are determined to enforce the law,” Isah said.
