The Code of Conduct Bureau has dismissed newspaper reports indicating that the bureau had not verified the assets of key officers of the incumbent administration, including President Muhammadu Buhari, his deputy, Professor Yemi Osinbajo ans Senate President Bukola Saraki.

According to CCB,  it has completed the verification of assets of above-mentioned  officials of the current administration.

CCB's Head, Press and Protocol Unit, Mohammad Idris,  said in a statement on Wednesday 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.

He said  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 statement reads in part, “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.

“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.”
