Some Peace Corps officials on Monday took their campaign to Benue State, where they appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to reconsider his decision and assent to the bill establishing the institution.
The Corps official made the demand during a protest along the streets of Makurdi, Benue State during Buhari’s visit.
They wielded placards with the message, “Fulfill your campaign promise of job creation,” “PMB please give us Peace Corps.”
Recall that Buhari had in February cited security concerns as reasons for withholding assent to the bill seeking to establish Peace Corps.
