Published

Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said beginning from June 1, bankers will be required to declare their assets in accordance with bank employees declaration of assets act.

Chairman of the antigraft agency, Abdulrasheed Bawa, disclosed this while speaking to state house correspondents in Abuja on Tuesday, March 16 after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

He explained that the commission took the decision as a result of concerns raised on the roles played by bankers in the fight against corruption because criminals would always want to have access to the proceeds of their crime.

Bawa noted that bankers would be asked to declare their assets and the commission would ensure that all employees in the nation’s banking industry comply with the directive.

The Chairman added;

The assurance that I am going to give Nigerians going forward is that we will do our best to ensure that this country is free of economic and financial crimes.

We understood that the tail end of every financial crime is for the criminals to have access to the funds that he or she has illegitimately gotten and we are worried about the roles of financial institutions.

Bawa stressed;

We have discussed, God willing, we hope that all financial institutions, particularly the bankers, will declare their assets as provided for by the law, in accordance with the Bank, Employees Declaration of Asset Act.

The EFCC come the 1st of June 2021 will be demanding for the declaration of asset forms filled by the bankers.
