President Muhammadu Buhari has rejected 17 bills passed by the 8th National Assembly.
Senior Special Assistant to President Senator ITA ENANG disclosed this to journalists at a news conference in Abuja.
He explained that the president decided not to communicate to the 9th Assembly on the rejection of the bills because it could not take any decision on the rejected bills.
The President however assented to 9 bills which are: Police Trust Fund Act, Nigeria Natural Medicine Establishment Act, FCT Management Board and Health Insurance, Suppression of Piracy and other Maritime Defence Bill, Institute of Transport Administration of Nigeria Bill, National Institute of Construction Technology and Management (Establishment) bill.
Others are National Agricultural Seed Council bill, Agriculture Credit Guarantee Scheme Fund (Amendment), and FCT Primary Healthcare Board.
Senator ITA ENANG also promised to engage the leadership of both chambers on the rationale behind the rejections of those bills.
