The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa, has on Tuesday, said bankers will be made to declare assets from June 1.
He said in line with the provisions of the Bank Employees Declaration of Asset Act, all bankers will have to fill the declaration forms.
Bawa said this in an interview with State House correspondents following a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said, “We understood that at the tail end of every financial crime, it is for the criminal to have access to the funds that he or she has illegitimately acquired and we are worried about the roles of financial institutions.
“We have discussed, but 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 June 1, 2021, will be demanding for this asset declaration forms, filled by the bankers so that the line that we have drawn from June 1 is really complied with by bankers in particular.”
