LAWAL, Ilias B. Public declaration of assets in Nigeria: Conflict or synergy between law and morality?. Afr. hum. rights law j. [online]. 2009, vol.9, n.1, pp.224-261. ISSN 1996-2096.

The Nigerian Constitution seeks to prevent corruption and abuse of office through its provisions on the declaration of assets by public officers. Although they are not obliged to do so, many public officers have publicly declared their assets. This has in turn put pressure on others to do so. In forging a synergy between the law and practice of asset declaration in Nigeria, the paper examines the human rights implications of the recent trend and proffers suggestions for improvement.
