CSO urges CCT to prosecute politicians for non-disclosure of assets

An international civil and non-profit organisation, Egalitarian Mission for Africa, has called for prosecution of politicians who failed to disclose their assets as required by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) Act.

The group, which alleged that most defaulters of the Act were political office holders, asked the chairman of the tribunal, Justice Danladi Umar, to bring defaulters to book.

The group alleged that many government workers, as well as political office holders, including politicians seeking elective positions, had failed to declare their assets through the filling of asset declaration forms. It also added that political office holders were also not always truthful to the law in completing the declaration of assets form.

The chairman, Board of Trustees of the organisation, Dr Kayode Ajulo, said the group would be working in partnership with the CCT to ensure that the law of declaration of assets is strictly adhered to in government organisations.

The human rights activist said the group, in partnership with relevant agencies, would compile the list of violators.

“We will publish it at the end of the process and will accordingly drag them before the CCT thereafter,” Ajulo said.
