The Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC) executive secretary, Yakubu Pam, has urged public servants to declare their assets to avoid falling foul of the law.

Mr Pam made the appeal at a workshop on assets declaration organised by the NCPC in collaboration with the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) for staff of the commission on Wednesday in Abuja.

He explained that it was imperative for all public servants to strictly comply with the provisions of the constitution on asset declaration. The NCPC executive secretary said it was now easier for public servants living above their means or owning properties to be exposed.

“We are in social media era where speculations have become the order of the day. Hence there is a need for constant updating of information so that no one is found wanting,” added Mr Pam. “Also, the constitutional provisions setting up the Code of Conduct Bureau empower it to enforce compliance for public servants in assets declaration.”

According to the NCPC executive, the commission will ensure that its staff declare their assets legally and morally binding on all public servants.

“NCPC will continue to ensure that all staff show a high level of morality and will aspire to be number one in the country in terms of compliance with the asset declaration law,” Mr Pam stressed.

He pledged more collaboration with the CCB by taking the lead on ethical issues in the public service and other relevant areas.
