Bureau to collaborate with mining cadastre to sensitise staff on conduct guidelines

The Code of Conduct Bureau has announced that it will work with the Mining Cadastre Office (MCO) to educate its employees on the 14 Code of Conduct Bureau rules.

Prof. Isa Mohammed, the bureau’s Chairman, stated this while awarding Mr. Obadiah Nkom, the Director-General of the MCO, with an honorary award on Monday in Abuja.

Prof. Samuel Ogundare, a member of the Bureau, who represented Mohammed, said collaboration with MCO was required to sensitize its employees.

He claimed that out of the 14 guidelines, most MDA officials were only aware of “Asset Declaration.”

He stated that MCO had recently released some of its employees to participate in the bureau’s public officer sensitization program.

He stated that a public officer must avoid conflicts of interest, abuse of office, bribery, and corruption, among other things, as part of the code of conduct guidelines.

In his words, “The code of conduct has 14 guidelines but most MDAs are only familiar with asset declaration, we are going round to sensitise them on the guidelines.

“We are trying to make public officers to comply with the code of conduct as enshrined in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“We know that MDAs do not know what we do in code of conduct bureau  but the cadastre made some of its staff available for our sensitisation programme recently and this is worthy of recognition.

“We want to identify with the cadastre office and strengthen its ethical structure and ensure that staff comply with the code of conduct guidelines that will make the business of the government successful, transparent and accountable.”

Responding, Nkom said that MCO would collaborate more with the bureau to move the country forward.

“I feel challenged with this award, it is a call for more work and dedication to the service of our land; I see this award as a reflection of work, we must be ambassador of code of conduct.

“I do my work not to earn an award but I do it with conscious based on oath to serve and contribute to the growth of our nation. I will dedicate this award to all the staff of cadastre, it is not for me only.

“We don’t want to be seen as an organisation issuing mining licences only; we will collaborate with code of conduct bureau and we will collaborate with the EFCC, among others,” he said.
