GOOD NEWS!! Senate Approves Establishment Of Nigerian Peace Corps(Read full Details)

The Senate on Tuesday at last passed a bill to make the Nigerian Peace Corps a para-military organization.


The Senate received the meeting report on the bill to set up the Nigerian Peace Corps, after it was so prompted by its board on legal, human rights and lawful issues.Both the Senate and the House of Representatives had separately passed the bill last year.

However, after the harmonisation of the two separate bills, the Senate had rejected the harmonised version, which has now been approved.

The bill will be sent to President Muhammadu Buhari for assent after the House also approves the harmonised version.

It is not clear if the presidency will approve of the bill as several departments in the executive including the police and the military are opposed to the legalisation of the Peace Corps which is currently a private NGO.
