SENATE URGES PRESIDENT BUHARI TO REVIEW POSITION ON PEACE CORPS BILL

The Senate yesterday has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to review his position in withholding assent on the bill to establish Peace Corps of Nigeria.

This followed the adoption of a Point of Order raised by Senator Dino Melaye during plenary.

Senator Melaye urged the Senate to revisit the bill with a view to veto the president if he failed to rescind his rejection of the bill.

President Buhari had cited duplication of duty and funding challenges in declining assent to the Nigerian Peace Corps (Establishment) Bill, 2017 recently passed by the National Assembly.
