  • "The issue of asset declaration is based on principle, if people are criticizing me because I have not declared my assets, I don't give a damn" These were the words of President Goodluck Jonathan during a media chat on National TV regarding his failure to publicly declare his asset, despite his strong stance against corruption.

    Dr Sam Saba, the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB), doesn't see anything wrong with the president's decision, provided the CCB has received asset declaration from Mr. President.

    “As far as we are concerned, Mr President has declared his assets, though not publicly. There is no law that says that you should declare your assets publicly; it simply states that you should declare your assets."

    “What is important is that he has declared his assets and when we go through his form and we discover any area that is questionable, then we will take him to court,” Dr. Sam explained.

    The CCB chairman was represented by Alhaji Ibrahim Manzo, the Federal Commissioner representing North West in the Bureau, at a Compliance Training Workshop for Public officers on Wednesday in Abuja.

    With the revelation of Dr. Sam, it appears Nigerians were just chasing a white horse, when they demanded that the president declares his asset, just the same way President Yar adua of blessed memory did.
