The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has indicated the deadline for bankers to submit their assets declaration forms is June 1.
According to the commission, it will be demanding the assets declaration form of all bankers across the country.
This was disclosed by the chairman of the EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, disclosed when he spoke to state house correspondents in Abuja after a meeting with President Buhari.
”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.
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, Etc. (Declaration of Assets) Act.
The EFCC come the 1st of June 2021 will be demanding for the declaration of asset forms filled by the bankers.”
