Buhari Rejects Four Bills Passed By House Of Reps, Gives Reasons

President Muhammadu Buhari has rejected four bills passed by the House of Representatives.
Buhari communicated his rejection via a letter read during plenary on Thursday.
The bills include the Corporate Manslaughter bill, 2018; Agricultural Credit Scheme (amendment) bill, 2018; National Child Protection and Enforcement Agency bill as well as Courts and Tribunal Standard Scales of Fines and Financial Penalties bill

Speaker Yakubu Dogara, who read the letter, said Buhari rejected the corporate manslaughter bill because its provisions were inconsistent with the 1999 constitution.

He also read that Buhari withheld his assent to the agricultural credit scheme (amendment) bill on the ground of increase of the credit therein which was initially tagged at N100 million.

The president added that the National Child Protection and Enforcement Agency bill is a duplication of duties of existing agencies such as National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP).

For the courts and tribunal standard scales of fines bill and financial penalties bill, the president explained that it contradicts existing laws in place.

The lower legislative chamber recently reintroduced 11 bills Buhari withheld assent to, for the purpose of overriding his veto power on them.
