Browsing: Code of Conduct Bureau

Two Lagos-based media support organisations, Media Rights Agenda and the International Press Centre, have petitioned the Code of Conduct Bureau asking it to sanction Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi for allegedly misconducting himself, breaching his oath of office and the Code of Conduct for Public Officers following his recent attacks on journalists in the State.

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project has sent a Freedom of Information requests to President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, 36 State Governors and their deputies, urging them to use their good offices to: “Provide information on summary of the assets, specifically property and income, contained in your asset declaration forms submitted to the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) since your assumption of office.”

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project has urged the remaining 35 state governors in Nigeria to emulate the shining example of Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, who recently openly declared his assets by publishing without further delay the full details of their asset declarations submitted to the Code of Conduct Bureau.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has submitted his assets declaration forms to the Code of Conduct Bureau ahead of the oath-taking ceremony slated for May 29 and in compliance with the requirement of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended).
