Reps Dare Buhari, Prepare To Override Peace Corps Bill
The battle line has been drawn between the President and members of the House of Representatives.
The lawmakers say they will override President Muhammadu Buhari’s veto on the Peace Corps Bill which he had earlier rejected.
The implication of this is that the lawmakers will pass the bill into law without Buhari’s assent if the Upper Chamber of the National Assembly walks the same path with the House.
The Chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Abdulrazak Namdas, who said this on Wednesday.
He said the National Assembly had begun the process of overriding Buhari’s veto on 10 bills.
According to Namdas, apart from the Peace Corps Bill, a Bill for an Act to Establish the Chartered Institute of Treasury Management; a Bill for an Act to Establish the Nigerian Council for Social Work; and a Bill for an Act to Amend the Currency Conversation of Prison Orders are some of the bills.
Others are “A Bill for an Act to Establish Police Procurement Fund, a Bill for an Act to Amend the Environmental Health Officers Registration, a Bill for an Act to Establish the Chartered Institute of Loan and Risk Management of Nigeria and a Bill for an Act to Establish the Chartered Institute of Public Management of Nigeria.”
