The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) has called on officials of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) to support fight against corruption at all levels.

Chairman of the bureau, Prof. Isa Mohammed, made the call Tuesday during a workshop it organised in conjunction with FCTA for political office holders in Abuja.

Mohammed, represented by Bulus Zaphania, said the programme would guide political office holders on compliance with Code of Conduct in line with the National Anti-corruption strategy (NACS).

He told the participants that they are expected to comply with the Code of Conduct for Public Officers as prescribed in the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended) and other laws related thereto.

“We employ council chairmen to take queue from the FCTA administration that has put up this workshop, and replicate
same at your various councils so as to ensure 100% compliance from all your staff.

“The participants are requested to put public interest above every other interest while carrying out their duties,” he stated.

He told the officials that the bureau will soon be launching the online Assets Declaration Portal, which the pilot scheme will start with its staff.

The permanent secretary, Adesola Olusade, said the workshop would help to build the capacity and knowledge of the workforce to strengthen fight against corruption.

“The workshop will help build the capacity and knowledge of FCTA officials in compliance with the Code of Conduct, which will also strengthen the fight against corruption in the system,” he said.
