Code of Conduct Conduct Bureau refuses to disclose assets

15 October 2015, 14:18

Abuja - The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) has said that assets declared by public officers would not be available for public inspection.

The CCB said that assets declarations by public officers contain personal information ?that fall within the exemptions of the Freedom of Information Act.

An advocacy group, Advocate for Peoples Rights and Justice, had filed an FOI request demanding the assets declaration forms of the heads of both the CCB; the Code of Conduct Tribunal; and Nasir El-Rufai, the governor of Kaduna State (while he was the FCT minister).

Tthe group stated in a letter dated September 28 and signed by Victor Giwa, its National Coordinator that the request is to to ensure the citizens’ right to know, in line with your fight against corruption.

The request came a week after the CCB slammed? a 13-count charge of false asset declaration and corruption against? Bukola Saraki, the Senate President.

The ?b?ureau accused Saraki‎ of offences ranging from anticipatory declaration of assets to failing to declare some assets – which were beyond his legitimate earning – he acquired while in office as governor.
