Mr. Akinfolarin Feyisola, Director, Code of Conduct Bureau, Ekiti State, has directed Gov. Kayode Fayemi to declare his “end of tenure assets” unfailingly before the expiration of his tenure.
Feyisola told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ado-Ekiti on Sunday that the directive also affected the outgoing deputy governor and other political office holders.
He said that all the affected public officers had been duly informed.
Feyisola said that it was mandatory for every political office holder in all parts of the country to declare their assets when coming and leaving office.
He said that defaulters would be dragged before the Code of Conduct Tribunal for going against the law.
He said that some of the officers had started collecting the assets declaration forms after receiving the reminder of the constitutional provision.
The director, however, said the current closure of all courts in the state was a challenge for those who had filled their forms but have nowhere to swear affidavit or do other court processes.
Feyisola advised those who are yet to collect or complete their assets forms to do so immediately, while awaiting the re-opening of the courts. (NAN)
