He also stressed that failure to comply with this requirement could have consequences.

According to Musa, declaring assets is a crucial obligation for individuals entering or leaving public office.

Musa stated, “As an agency of the government, we have fulfilled our constitutional mandate by issuing asset declaration forms to newly elected and returning public officers.

However, as asset declaration is an ongoing process, we have already begun to receive completed forms from some individuals, while others are yet to submit theirs.
