President Muhammadu Buhari has explained why he rejected the Peace Corps of Nigeria establishment bill passed by the National Assembly in 2017.

Naija News reported that the speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, on Tuesday, read the letter by the president stating the reason why he refused to sign the bill.

Buhari revealed the reason in the letter titled, “Presidential Decision To Decline Assent To Nigerian Peace Corps(Establishment) Bill 2017 Recently Passed By The National Assembly”.

The president stated “security concerns regarding the proposed outfit being authorised to undertake activities currently being performed by extant security and law enforcement agencies.”

He also stated financial implications of funding the establishment and operations of the proposed peace corps and added that the scarce financial resources may pose serious challenge to the government.
