IN CONTINUATION of the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB)’s drag net to haul in public officers who cook the books over their assets, about seven ex-commissioners that served in Enugu State Government between 2015 and 2019 have landed into trouble.
Others indicted by CCB are five special assistants who served the state within the same period.
Director of Code of Conduct Bureau in Enugu State, Mrs. Lucy Ijetta, disclosed this in an interview yesterday, adding that those indicted will be prosecuted unless they regularise their assets declarations by July ending.
According to her, those on CCB radar are part of 24 commissioners and 15 special advisers that served in the last dispensation in Enugu State who failed to comply with the regularisation rule.
“Among the 24 former commissioners, 17 have ended their tenures with us while 10 of the former special advisers had also done the same thing. The defaulters have until the end of July to do so failing of which I will list their names as defaulters and forward to our head office for onward transmission to the CCB Tribunal,” she said.
