The Presidency says it is taking steps to reform the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) and Tribunal (CBT) to enhance their efficiency.
The expected reform according to justice minister, Abubakar Malami, will enhance the capacity of the bureau to enforce the code of conduct on public servants and public officers
The Minister spoke on the planned reform at the national workshop on the reform of the code of conduct bureau and tribunal act and related provisions of the constitution, organised by the Nigerian Law Reform Commission in Abuja.
Malami adds that the proposed reform will enable the bureau to punish officers violating the code of conduct.
Acting chairman of Nigeria Law Reform Commission, Professor Jummai Audi, says various parts of the CCB act had been identified for review.
She says that there is the need to remove the bureau from the judiciary in order to guarantee its independence.
