Nigerian peace corps bill scale first reading in Senate



Nigerian peace corps bill advances: senate considers adoption

The Nigerian Peace Corps Establishment Bill, which was previously passed by the House of Representatives on February 29, 2024 and forwarded to the Senate for agreement, has been read on the Senate floor.

As a result, the Senate will soon consider a motion for concurrence, which will be filed by Senate Leader Senator Micheal Opeyemi Bamidele (APC Ekiti Central), allowing the Senate to pass the measure in accordance with the National Assembly’s current procedures.

Established almost 25 years ago by National Commandant Dr. Dickson Akoh, the Peace Corps of Nigeria was recognized by the Federal Government through the Federal Ministry of Youth Development and was incorporated in Nigeria under the Company and Allied Matters Act (CAMA).

The Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget, and National Planning awarded it a license to function as a non-governmental organization in the country.

In addition to the Peace Corps law, the Senate approved the Nigerian Hunters and Security Service law 2024, the Legislative Houses (Powers & Privileges) Act (Amendment) Bill 2024, and the National Talent Rehabilitation and Integration Agency (Establishment) Bill 2024.

Others are the Agricultural Research Council Act (Amendment) Bill 2024 and the Agricultural Harvest and Processing Zone (Establishment) Bill 2024.
