Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB, yesterday declared that it had completed the verification of the assets declared to it by President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President Bukola Saraki, and other top government officials in the current dispensation.
The head, Press and Protocol Unit of the bureau, Mohammed Idris said this in a statement debunking a newspaper publication in which it was claimed that the verification of the assets of President Buhari and other government officials by the CBB was still ongoing.
Alhaji Idris, an assistant director in the bureau, said the newspaper publication was a trick targeted at undermining ongoing trials before the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
Saraki is currently undergoing trial before the CCT on 16 counts, including false assets declaration.
The statement titled ‘Re: CCB Still Verifying Buhari, Osinbajo, Saraki, others’ assets,’ added that under President Buhari’s administration, the CCB had been recording increased level of compliance to asset declaration by public officials.
The statement read in part: “The bureau wishes to inform the general public that it has since concluded the verification of assets declared by those mentioned in the said publication.
“Therefore, the said publication is another trick to misinform the public so as to undermine the ongoing trials of cases of false declaration of assets before the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
“It could be observed that since the inception of the present administration under President Muhammadu Buhari, the rate of compliance by public officials in responding to assets declaration has greatly increased.
“The bureau will like to use this medium to appeal to those who are yet to declare their assets to visit the Asokoro head office of No 23, Halle Salasi Street, Asokoro, Abuja, to collect, fill and submit same to the office.”
