Secrets Reporters

A recent finding showed that Asiru Azeez Adelani, a National Centre for Women Development (NCWD) board member, was involved in activities that potentially breached the Code of Conduct Bureau Act for public officers.

The findings revealed that Adelani, through association with Hef Consulting Limited, received contracts amounting to a staggering 134,616,473.2 Nigerian Naira, breaching the Code of Conduct Bureau and Tribunal Act.

This discovery raises significant ethical and legal questions, given the strict regulations imposed by Section 6(B) of the Code of Conduct Bureau and Tribunal Act. This section clearly stipulates that public officers, unless not employed on a full-time basis, are prohibited from managing or participating in any private business ventures, with the exception of farming.
