ACC ASSETS DECLARATION REGIME IS ONE OF THE BEST IN AFRICA-WORLD BANK SPECIALIST
Date: 2017-08-02

Senior Financial Sector Specialist at the World Bank in Washington has praised the Assets Declaration Regime of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) as one of the best in Africa. Cari Votava made the statement recently while leading a World Bank Team on a short visit to the Assets Declaration Unit of the ACC.

Ms. Votava described the ACC assets declaration form as one of the best in Africa which other anti-corruption institutions in the continent should copy from. She also praised the ACC for the proper handling of the assets declaration forms.

The World Bank Specialist also said, to address the challenges of handling the large number of assets declaration forms, declaration should be limited to politically exposed persons. She said there should also be administrative sanctions for those who fail to declare their assets within the specified period.

The Head of the Assets Declaration Unit at the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), Zainab Othman explained to the World Bank Team the assets declaration process. She also spoke about the online assets declaration exercise which was introduced by the Commission this year.

Miss Othman also praised the assets declaration by top government officials and civil servants, which she described as very impressive.

The World Bank Team was taken on a conducted tour of the storage facilities of the assets declaration forms by Brima Thullah, Archivist at the ACC.

The Anti-Corruption Act 2008 makes provision for all public officers to declare their assets, income and liabilities with the ACC every year while assuming and leaving office.
