The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) yesterday asked the Ministers dropped by President Goodluck Jonathan to declare their assets.

A statement by Mrs Iyabo Akinwale, the Head of Press and Protocol Unit of CCB in Abuja, said the directive was in accordance with “Paragraph 11 of the 5th Schedule, Part One of the 1999 Constitution”.
The statement explained that the schedule provides that “every public officer shall, within three months after coming into force of this bureau or immediately after taking office and at the end of every four years, submit to it a written declaration of all property, assets and liabilities.”
Last Wednesday, erstwhile Minister of Aviation, Stella Oduah was shown the way out of the federal cabinet.
Also affected in the shake-up include the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godsday Orubebe, Minister of Police Affairs, Caleb Olubolade and the Minister of state for Finance, Dr Yerima Ngama
Before the sack, Oduah and Orubebe had been fingered in alleged fraudulent activities in their respective ministries.
