Tinubu Urged To Assent To Nigerian Peace Corps Establishment Bills
A Veteran Journalist, Olarewaju Akinfenwa has urge President Bola Tinubu to sign the Nigerian Peace Corps Establishment Bills into law.
He Opined that President Tinubu should have come up with people driven bills if he is truly after what will benefit Nigerians.
It was gathered that the Peace Corps Bill had been passed during the administration of the Former President, President Mohammadu Buhari but he didn’t approve it.
Also it would be recall that after President Tinubu was sworn in as the sixteenth President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in May 29, he has signed four bills into law.
In an interview with Akinfenwa on Fresh FM Osogbo on Tuesday, he said the bill will lift out many Nigerians from poverty through employment into the service.
According to Akinfenwa, “The issue of this bills is something that even baffles me if you are claiming to be a new regime for the benefit of Nigerians, I think to my own mind they should have come up with people driven bills.
“All these bill we are talking about were adjourned by the ninth assembly passed unto ex- President Buhari he just came in read and started signing.
“But there was a particular bill which I think should have been at the forefront if they mean well for Nigerians and what is that bill it is the bill on “Nigerian Peace Corps”.
“Incidentally that bill was either sponsored or headed by the present Vice President, it is just to sign that bill and hundreds or thousands of Nigerians will be lifted out of poverty through employment into the service but that bill is still there.
“Is it that President does not trust his Vice President or he doesn’t want to alleviate Nigerians poverty? ”
