Socio-Econonic Rights Accountability Projects (SERAP) has dragged the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) to court for the latter refusal to publicise the asset declarations of presidents and governors that has emerged since the year 1999.

The CCB said it had not been making them known to the public because asset declarations documents are private and should be treated as such in order not to go against the law.

However, the human right organisation, SERAP is not satisfied with CCB’s claim, thereby taking the issue to court for better interpretation. SERAP informs the public about the development via its social media platforms as thus:

BREAKING: We have launched a legal action against the Code of Conduct Bureau in the Federal High Court, Lagos to challenge its claim that asset declarations of presidents, governors since 1999 are private documents, and producing the documents would offend their right to privacy
