Peter Mbah, the governor-elect of Enugu, has declared his assets to the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) ahead of the May 29 inauguration.

Speaking at the CCB’s south-east zonal office in Enugu on Friday, Mbah said the declaration was critical for the promotion of transparency and accountability in the governance of the state.

“As the chief executive, we are meant to uphold the law. It is also incumbent on us to act lawfully, and what we have simply done here today is in line with the new direction of my career,” he said.

“As you also know, I am now migrating from the corporate environment to the public sector. In the private sector, we have codes of corporate governance and here in the public sector, we also have the code of conduct for the public servants,” he said.


“What we have simply done today is to comply with the requirements of the law by filling the forms as stipulated by law. The process is quite seamless and we have populated the forms, and we have also, in the presence of a notary public, executed the law as required. 

“My administration shall be upholding these requirements for all public officers. It is mandatory and it’s not an option. As public servants, we are not left with any option, but to fill our CCB forms. We must abide by the provisions of the law.”

Prior to this, Mbah and the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) have been at loggerheads over the issue of the governor-elect’s discharge certificate.


Yisha’u Ahmed, director-general of the NYSC said the scheme is not responsible for the discharge certificate awarded to Mbah.

The DG said he had met with Mbah saying, “I was frank with him, and I told him this certificate is not from us”.

As a result of this, Mbah has sued the NYSC and Ibrahim Muhammad, the scheme’s director of certifications, for N20 billion for what he described as conspiracy, deceit, and misrepresentation of facts.
