He said CCB had already issued the asset declaration forms to all newly elected and re-elected public officers in Nigeria, adding that there would be consequences if they default.

Musa informed that asset declaration is part of the prerequisites for occupying or exiting a public office.

He said: “As an agency of government, we have already done our work according to the constitutional mandate; we have issued assets declaration forms to the newly elected and returning public officers.

“But since asset declaration administration is a continuous process, we have started receiving some completed forms from some of them while some are yet to return theirs.

“The constitution is clear on defaulters; hence they should declare before they are sworn in or they face the consequences.”

President Muhammadu Buhari whose eight-year maximum term ends on May 29, 2023, didn’t publicly declare his asset. Umaru Musa Yar’Adua who ruled between 2007 to 2010 remained the only president who declared his asset to the public.
