Nigerian Senate Finally Passes Peace Corps Bill...See Details

The Nigerian Senate on Tuesday, 25th July, 2017, finally passed a bill to make the Nigerian Peace Corps a para-military agency.

Members of the Senate on Tuesday, finally passed a bill to make the Nigerian Peace Corps a para-military agency.

According to Premium Times, the lawmakers adopted the conference report on the bill to establish the Nigerian Peace Corps, after it was so advised by its committee on judiciary, human rights and legal matters.

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.
