Speaking to Daily Trust at the sidelines of compliance training for public officers in Abuja yesterday, Director of Education and Advocacy Services of the CCB Mr. Essien Okokon said it was mandatory for every public office holder to comply with the law or “we will use the provisions of the law to enforce them.”
He said lots of public servants have so far complied by declaring their assets but that it was important more people followed suit.
According to Okokon, any officer who refused to declare all assets acquired, when discovered, will face three sanctions including “vacation of office, ban from holding public office within a period of time not more than 10 years and seizure or forfeiture of assets.” The court has the final decision to make though, he said.
He said the workshop was to enlighten public officers about the code of conduct Act for them to “take a preventive rather than been enforced.”
