A pro-democracy group, National Committee of Yoruba Youths, NCYY, has called on Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, to remove the chairman of Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti-Corruption, PACAC, Professor Itse Sagay, for failure to declare his assets at the Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB, in accordance with the law.
The group in a statement signed by its National President, Comrade Oladimeji Odeyemi, stated that it had conducted a thorough but secret search at the CCB’s office and was convinced that Sagay did not declare his assets.
It said: “The consequences of this illegality is for Prof. Sagay to be removed. We, therefore, give the respected Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, who is a Professor of Law and a senior advocate, to put a stop to this illegality within 48 hours.
“We also call on the CCB to within 72 hours thoroughly investigate Professor Sagay.”
“We are surprised and disappointed to find out that Sagay continues to go to equity with soiled hands. He is the one who is loudest about the anti-corruption fight of the government, yet he did not declare his assets, the statement said.
