The senator representing Kaduna central at the Senate, Shehu Sani, has shared his opinion about public officials declaring their assets, stating that any politician who thinks of himself as a saint, should be able to publicly declare his assets.
The senator shared his thought on the matter through a post on his Facebook page yesterday.
Sani stated that if politicians are not able to declare their assets, they can’t cast the first stone.
“Anyone among the ruling political elites who thinks of himself as a saint, should publicly declare his assets or have the courage to ask the code of conduct to publicly publish what he or she declared,” the lawmaker said.
“If you can’t,then you can’t cast the first stone by hiding your questionable wealth under official secrecy.”
The lawmaker’s remark is coming in the wake of the false assets declaration charges filed against the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen.
According to reports, the CJN was supposed to be arraigned at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) on Monday but he was unequivocally absent but his lawyers have challenged the jurisdiction of the tribunal to entertain the matter.
