Nigeria Peace Corps Bill not before Buhari – Enang

— 17th September 2017

The Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Sen. Ita Enang, says Nigeria Peace Corps Bill is yet to be presented to the President for assent.

He said at the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Forum in Abuja that the bill was yet to complete its legislative process at the National Assembly.

Enang said that he was unaware of any bill that had been passed by the legislature that was pending before Buhari for his endorsement.

“I have heard some members of the public saying that the Petroleum Industry Bill has been passed and has not been assented to.

“Some said that the Peace Corp Bill has been passed and sent to the president and has not been signed or that it is already a law and people have started buying forms.

“Some said that they have started sowing uniform and that some states have started operations, as if Peace Corp, as if it were, is a law.

“I want to use this opportunity to say the Peace Corp legislative process has not yet been completed to the extent that it should be forwarded to the president

“It has not been forwarded to the president and so, it is not yet pending for assent,’’ he said.

Enang advised the public not to be worried about the bill, and warned that anybody acting on the bill, whose legislative processes were yet to be completed, was illegal.

“The Bill processes have not been completed and it has not been forwarded to the president for assented to become law, and therefore, anything anybody does, using the bill is at the person’s risk.

“As an agency that has not been established, it cannot start operation; it cannot engage people, it cannot generate revenue unless and until it is established by law. Therefore, I will urge Nigerians not to be worried.

“The last time before the bill went back to the legislature, the Federal Government, the police and other agencies did something to draw attention to the status of the Peace Corp but it does appear that it is going back to where it was.’’

It would be recalled that Bill establishing the Corps, which was sponsored by Sen. Bayero Nafada (APC-Gombe), was passed by the Senate in July, 2017.

The bill was passed in a unanimous voice vote after the Chairman, Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, Sen. David Umaru, had presented report on issues surrounding adoption of the conference report on it.

How is this news a good news? Where is the money to pay peace corp officers? The most annoying thing about this stuff is that some Old men and Women that are fat and obese are also buying this form claiming youth.
