Code of Conduct Bureau directs Ekiti Governor, Fayemi, deputy to declare assets

Governor Kayode Fayemi

The  Director in charge of the Code of Conduct Bureau, Ekiti State, Akinfolarin Feyisola, has directed Governor Kayode Fayemi to declare his “end of tenure assets” unfailingly before the expiration of his tenure.

Mr. Feyisola told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ado-Ekiti on Sunday that the directive also affected the outgoing deputy governor and other political office holders.

He said that all the affected public officers had been duly informed.

Mr. Feyisola said that it was mandatory for every political office holder in all parts of the country to declare their assets when coming and leaving office.

He said that defaulters would be dragged before the Code of Conduct Tribunal for going against the law.

He said that some of the officers had started collecting the assets declaration forms after receiving the reminder of the constitutional provision.

The director, however, said the current closure of all courts in the state was a challenge for those who had filled their forms but have nowhere to swear affidavit or do other court processes.

Mr. Feyisola advised those who are yet to collect or complete their assets forms to do so immediately, while awaiting the re-opening of the courts.

    False declaration of assets and accounts is what has to be taken seriously.
    It is actually the failure to prosecute perjury which is tantamount to impunity.
    The false declaration by Bola Ahmed Tinubu is said to be still on appeal in court.

    But because Nigerians have no faith in Nigeria’s attorney-general Mohammed Adoke
    – for having blundered the case at trial, Nigerians are not sure if the case on appeal
    was ever properly filed, docketed and scheduled for hearing at anytime in future.

  • Truthometer

    Dumbo don’t give a damn about assets declaration. Should members of opposition party equally give a damn? Are we in animal farm?

    • Tonnero

      Yes, we should give a damn. We should not allow GEJ and wrecking crew drag us into the mud like themselves.

  • MINT65

    Only God know how much Gov Fayemi will be worth now he said he was worth 750 million 4 years ago(I still dey laugh) I doubt whether anyone bothered to verify then …….I am sure it was an anticipatory declaration. Anyway there is God,,,,

  • Usman

    if it is mandatory, what will happen to GEJ? he has not declared it on assumption of office

    • sharp shape

      Go and rear cows ! Constitutionally you have to declare your assets before you can vie for public office in Nigeria ! GEJ did not make his declaration public so that nitwits like you will not start to speculate !

      • Tonnero

        Wrong answer. It is BECAUSE he did not make it public that is making us nitwits speculate. There would be no speculation if he had made it public. He was just bloody scared we would either be amazed at how his wealth has grown between 2007 and 2011 OR we would know he is lying. In any case, shameful behaviour for the president of a country whose biggest challenges are corruption and lack of transparency.

        • sharp shape

          What I meant exactly ! He does he is doomed ! He doesn’t he is doomed ! Admit it , you hate his guts and wish him ill ! However it’s not up to you to decide what happens ! That privilege is for Allah only (saw) may you be guided righteously Amin !

            Very very dis graceful comments here.
            Forget these clowns. I was once a civil servant, and I can assure you any civil servant that reads what that guy above is saying will cry at his IGNORANCE!
            I keep urging Naijas to educate themselves and not get carried away by some mischievous articles in PT and sahara.
            The law says assets should be declared. We civil servants ALL do!
            The state govnrs all do!
            How many ‘public’ declarations by the governors and thousands of civil servants did these gullible Naijas like Tonnero hear of??
            The law says assets shld b declared with the Code of conduct commission/bureau. NOTHING ABOUT GOING PUBLIC!
            The fact that Yaradua did it doesn’t make it mandatory..besides it doesn’t change anything!
            The idea is anyone can go to the CCB and ask for anyone’s declaration form!
            Honestly I laugh when some people display their ignorance here!
            It’s shameful!

          • sharp shape

            Thanks I was wondering about the stupidity of most nigerians !

  • Thepeople

    This outragious double standards must be condemned. This shameless director is not fit for such an important office if he does not understand that he has no moral justification to instruct the governor of a state to declare his assets when the president of the country has balantly refused to declare his assests.

  • Jacsey1

    Honestly, this is a good move if the notion is genuine. The bureau was silent on President’s and other governors’ assets declaration but forcing an opposition party’s governor to do the same, it looks like there is a point they are trying to proof. Since a sitting governor can be asked to declare his assets, why not others too? Let all our political office holders including the president declare their assets for public scrutiny.

    • Henry

      You guys were sold a dummy my PT and Sahara cos they know how ignorant most of u are.
      I beg you, ask any civil servant you may know. Let them tell you what the law says about declaration.
      The presidents declaration form will be with the CCB as thousands of other Nigerians.
      There is NOTHING Like public declaration in the law.
      The onus is on you to request for it.
      Go find out and don’t be misled so easily!
