The Executive Secretary of Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), Prof Sulaiman Bogoro, was on Tuesday, honoured with an award of excellence from the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).
The award was presented to the TETFund boss during a two-day workshop on strict compliance with asset declaration and Code of Conduct for public officers, organised by the Bureau in collaboration with Transmission Company of Nigeria.
Presenting the award of honour to Bogoro, the Bureau’s chairman, Professor Isa Muhammed, represented by Professor Samuel Ogundare, said the workshop was to interact on the issue of code of conduct in Nigeria.
Ogundare said, “It is to specify the standard of integrity and conduct that is expected of public officers. The second thing in mind is to help public officers in Nigeria to meet these standard and to also inform the public what they should expect from public officers.
“The issue is Code of Conduct is becoming critical because public officers are now entrusted with public resources so they are been monitored,” he added.
Presenting a topic on service ethics and problems of non compliance among public officers, Dr Sebastine Gwimi, director Intelligence Investigation and Monitoring, stressed the need for demonstrable political commitment of the highest political level which is critical for successful promotion of durable sound ethical figures.
