The Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Lieutenant General Yusuf Buratai has directed that all officers in the Nigerian Army must declare their assets with immediate effect.
A statement issued by the Army Col. Sani Usman said Buratai gave the directive that officers of the Nigerian Army who have not declared their assets to do so immediately, at the directive during a conference with Principal Staff Officers and Directors serving at the Army Headquarters.
Usman said the COAS had done so soon on his appointment as Commander, Multinational Joint Task Force in May 2015 and also on his appointment as Chief of Army Staff in July 2015. Copies of both are with the Code of Conduct Bureau.
The statement reads in part: “This directive is in order,considering the fact that all military officers are having Presidential Commission and are public servants, as well as subject to both civil and military laws. In addition, given the current drive of the country for probity and accountability, the Nigerian Army should not only key in but should be one of the key drivers for such laudable project.”
