These declarations are made by both elected and appointed public officials and deposited with the Code of Conduct Bureau.. Specifically, Paragraph 3, Part 1 of the 3rd Schedule to the 1999 Constitution and Paragraph 11, Part 1 of the 5th Schedule to the same Constitution requires the Code of Conduct Bureau to collect, verify and make available to the public the duly filled assets declaration forms of these public office holders.. These forms have never been disclosed.. With the Freedom of Information Act (FoIA) in place the Bureau has as an obligation under Section 1 to allow for public access to this information.. 12 years after the onset of elective civilian government in Nigeria and with the passage of the Freedom  ...   mandates it to receive, examine, retain in its custody and allow for public access to these asset declaration forms..

This action by the Bureau demonstrates that it is institutionally complicit in the plunder of Nigeria’s resources by corrupt public officials.. Right To Know Initiative (R2K), Nigeria has commenced a campaign on the voluntary declaration of assets by public officials who believe in transparency and are willing to publicly declare the content of their asset declaration forms held in the custody of the Code of Conduct..
