The Civil Society Network Against Corruption (CSNAC) has urged the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) to investigate and prosecute the Senator representing Anambra South in the National Assembly, Mr. Andy Uba, over alleged false declaration of assets.

In a petition to the Bureau’s Chairman signed by the coalition’s chairman, Mr. Olanrewaju Suraju, CSNAC said a report by an online newspaper, PREMIUM TIMES, quoting the Panama Papers, alleged that the Senator owned 4,950 shares in an offshore company, Wentworth Properties Limited, in the Republic of Seychelles, while holding public office, in violation of a federal Code of Conduct law as spelt out in the Fifth Schedule of the 1999 Constitution, as amended.

The files accessed by PREMIUM TIMES and published on Saturday, May 14, 2016, alleged the incorporation of the company in 2004 when Andy Uba was an aide to former President Olusegun Obasanjo and holds majority share in the company till date.

According to the paper, “Dr Uba’s net worth was insignificant and almost peasantry before May 29, 1999 when Olusegun Obasanjo was sworn in as President. He later returned from his sojourn in the United States to be appointed a presidential aide.”

He is believed to have become suddenly rich, running for governor in 2007, and then for senatorial position after his governorship election was annulled.

CSNAC noted that CCB, which is vested with the responsibility of prosecuting public officers found in violation of this law, has however failed in its constitutional duty of investigating and prosecuting several of such matters. 

“CSNAC is by this petition demanding the immediate investigation and prosecution of Senator Andy Ubah for these alleged violations of above stated provisions of the constitution,” the group said in the petition dated May 17, 2016.
