Complying with Presidential order, Nigeria’s 36 state governors have all hurried to the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) to declare their assets, although none of them want it publicly declared.
The probe of the declared assets might take some months to complete and the CCB is expecting all the governors to close down their foreign accounts.
According to an official of the agency; “From our compilation so far, all the governors have declared their assets. This is the first time we are experiencing full compliance by the governors because of the anti-corruption policy of President Muhammadu Buhari.”
“In spite of the fact that the law allows the governors to declare their assets within three months, they have all rushed to fulfil this constitutional obligation.
“I think they were all responding to the spur of the moment on anti-graft war. We are happy that the governors have emulated the President and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.”
