The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) said yesterday that it has completed the verification of assets declared by President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President, Bukola Saraki and other top officials of the current administration.
CCB’s Head, Press and Protocol Unit, Mohammad Idris said in the statement, that more than ever before, the rate of compliance to assets declaration requirement by public officers has increased since the inception of this administration.
The agency said in a statement yesterday, that it was not true, as reported by a newspaper, that it was yet to conclude the verification of assets declared by Buhari, Osinbajo, Saraki and others.
“The said publication is another trick to misinform the public so as to undermine the on-going trials of cases of false declaration of assets before the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).
“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.
