Twenty-one days before the presidential inauguration, the Code of Conduct Bureau insists the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; the Vice President-elect, Kashim Shettima and 28 incoming governors must declare their assets before May 29. The CCB spokesperson, Mrs Veronica Kato, told newsmen in Abuja that asset declaration was an integral part of the swearing-in ceremony, according to the law. She disclosed that several elected officials had started picking their assets declaration forms at the CCB state offices nationwide and that they were expected to submit the filled copies to the bureau before the inauguration day. The constitution stipulates that all public officers shall declare their assets and liabilities on the assumption of office and at the end of their tenure of office. Meanwhile, a group under the All Progressives Congress on Sunday called on the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, and the National Working Committee members to shun entreaties by ensuring that one geo-political zone does not produce two presiding officers in either of the two chambers ahead of the 10th Assembly inauguration. The group further warned that it would be in the interest of the party to zone the presiding offices of the Senate President, Deputy Senate President, Speaker, House of Representatives and Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives to different geo-political zones.
