President Muhammadu Buhari has rejected the proposed Peace Corps of Nigeria establishment bill.

This was disclosed on Tuesday in a letter during plenary by Yakubu Dogara, Speaker of the House of Representatives

Buhari said the reason for rejecting the bill was based on security concerns and financial burden of funding the organisation by the government.

Recall the national assembly passed the bill in 2015, after a prolonged battle involving the organisation and the nation’s security agencies.
