Written by darling on March 20, 2019
President MUHAMMADU BUHARI has declined assent to two bills passed by the National Assembly, citing discrepancies with global best practices and duplication of duties of already existing agencies.
The bills are the Chartered Institute of Training and Development of Nigeria Bill, and the Nigerian Aeronautic Research Rescue Bill.
The President conveyed his decision to decline his assents to the bills, via a letter transmitted to the House of Representatives, and read on the floor of the House during plenary by the Speaker, YAKUBU DOGARA.
According to the letter, BUHARI’S decision to decline assent to the Chartered Institute of Training and Development of Nigeria Bill was because of concerns that the Institute does not possess the capacity of the requirements that might be imposed on it if the bill is assented to.
