The Code of Conduct Bureau has drafted a new strategy to re-awaken it from its over 30 years of moribund status.
A copy of the CCB’s draft strategy shows that the bureau is to start a ‘name’ and ‘shame’ approach to strengthen its enforcement of compliance with code of conduct by public officers.
A 53-point strategic objectives document developed by the bureau to guide its operations from 2019 to 2023 was introduced at a recent retreat organised by the bureau for its management, staff and board members.
Speaking with journalists on the sidelines of the retreat on, the Chairman of the CCB, Isa Mohammed, noted that the event was part of the moves by the CCB’s new board inaugurated in November 2018 to re-awaken the CCB.
There are 13 codes in the Code of Conduct for Public Officers provided for in the Constitution and the Code of Conduct Bureau and Tribunal Act which the CCB is expected to enforce and ensure public servants comply with.But in the 30 years of its existence, the CCB has only focused primarily on one of the codes – assets declaration.
