Buratay noted that the seminar was important for the military as it provided the military with the opportunity to fulfill their duties as government officials in accordance with the provisions of the Fifth Agenda of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended).
He said: “The Nigerian Armed Forces under my leadership are willing to maintain the highest standards of accountability in conducting our operations in accordance with the demands and conduct of government officials, with the highest standards of fairness, public morality, transparency and accountability.

My policy is based on the belief that any military personnel charged with leadership responsibilities must understand the importance of the Declaration of Ownership and the Code of Conduct for government officials and comply with all provisions and requirements. ”
CCB President Isa Mohammed noted that the problems facing the nation are the result of indiscipline in public life.
Mohammed, represented by Professor Samuel Ogundare, thanked the Nigerian military for organizing the seminar, which he said would provide participants with an opportunity to fully understand the functioning of the Code of Conduct Office and the need to declare assets. …
In his welcoming speech, the Chief of the Army Standards and Assessment Service, General H. Vintenaba, stressed that the seminar will help military officers understand the consequences of not complying with the CCB’s asset declaration provisions.
