With the recent interest in Nigerians in the assets of public office holders, the Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Shehu Sani, has called on the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) to publish all asset declarations made by public office holders since 1999.

Speaking via his Facebook page on Monday, September 21, 2015, Sani said making the declarations public would afford Nigerians the opportunity to form Transparency Vigilante Groups that would verify the said claims.

He said: “The law allows public office holders the privilege to declare their assets in confidence at the CCB but it does not bar the CCB from making public all the declaration made by public office holders.

“The CCB should go ahead and publish all declaration made by public office holders from 1999 to date as empowered by the freedom of information act. This will enable the masses to form ‘Transparency vigilante groups’ and move around to verify claims and depositions made, to
compliment the manpower deficiency of the CCB.

“The masses deserve to know the material worth of all their elected and appointed public office holders. Every public office holder must come to equity with clean or at least not dirty hand.

“Nigerians must demand full disclosure from the CCB.”
