Sani To CCB: Publish Assets Of Public Officials From 1999-Date

Shehu-SaniThe Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Comrade Shehu Sani, has called on the Code of Conduct Bureau to publish all declarations made by public office holders since 1999.

The civil rights activist, in a Facebook post on Sunday, said by so doing, the public would be able to form ‘transparency vigilante groups’, who would verify claims made by public office holders.

Sani’s call is coming on the heels of a legal battle between Senate President Bukola Saraki and the Code of Conduct Tribunal over alleged false declaration of assets by the former.

Sen. Sani enjoined Nigerians to demand full disclosure from the CCB although the law does not compel the CCB to make public, assets of public officials.

“The masses deserve to know the material worth of all their elected and appointed public office holders. Every public office holder must come to equity with clean or at least not dirty hand.

“PMB, by his public declaration, has set a high moral standard that must be abided by those who particularly lay claim to the change agenda”, he said.
