The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) has directed the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, his vice, Kashim Shettima, and elected or re-elected governors to declare their assets before taking office on May 29.
The Bureau warned that those who take oath of office without declaring their assets will face the “consequences.”
The CCB disclosed that it had already issued the asset declaration forms to all of them, but some are yet to submit it as of today, Tuesday, May 23
Prof. Mohammed Isah, the Special Assistant to CCB Chairman, Dr. Mustapha Musa, who said this in a chat with newsmen on Tuesday, noted the Bureau has done its part by issuing the asset declaration forms to all newly elected and re-elected public officers across the country.
According to Musa, the nation’s Constitution is clear on the consequences for those that fail to return the form before they are sworn in.
