The Federal Ministry of Works and  Housing has charged senior directors to ensure strict compliance with asset declaration processes, adding that refusal is an offence liable for sanctions.

The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Bashir Alkali, gave the warning during a sensitization workshop organised for directors on strict compliance with asset declaration processes, code of conduct and the consequences attached to infringements.

Alkali, in a statement signed by the Director, Press and Public Relations, Blessing Lere-Adams on Wednesday, stated that the workshop was to enlighten the participants on the provisions of the Code of Conduct Bureau and Tribunal and its application as they relate to asset declaration.

The PUNCH reported that according to the 14 codes guiding public officers in the Code of Conduct Act & Code of Ethics in Government Business, civil servants are mandated to declare their assets every four years within years they are still in service of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“Given the importance and seriousness attached to the issue, the Ministry is determined to ensure that this enlightenment programme is cascaded to all levels of officers from the Directorate cadre downwards,” he said.

He pointed out that it had become imperative to organize the workshop due to increased cases of infringement of the codes by public officers thereby resulting in frequent invitations for questioning by the Bureau.
