All Officers of the Nigerian Army, who have not declared their assets are hereby urged to do so with immediate effect, the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusuf Buratai said.
This disclosure was made known in a statement issued on Wednesday night by the Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Col. Sani Usman.
According to the statement, “It is to be noted that the Chief of Army Staff has done so, soon on his appointment as Commander, Multinational Joint Task Force in May 2015 and also on his appointment as Chief of Army Staff in July 2015. Copies of both are with the Code of Conduct Bureau.”
“This directive is in order, considering the fact that all military officers are having Presidential Commission and are public servants, as well as subject to both civil and military laws.
“In addition, given the current drive of the country for probity and accountability, the Nigerian Army should not only key in but should be one of the key drivers for such laudable project.”
The Army Chief gave the directive during a conference with Principal Staff Officers and Directors serving at the Army Headquarters.
