Senate Passes Peace Corps Bill
The upper chamber of the national assembly has passed the Nigerian Peace Corps bill.
The senators passed the bill based on an advice by the committee on judiciary, human rights and legal matters.
Before passing the bill, the upper legislative chamber adopted a conference committee report on the bill.
The report was presented by Bayero Nafada, a lawmaker from Gombe state.
By this action, the bill will now be forwarded to the president for assent.
