Senate may override President Muhammadu Buhari’s veto of the Peace Corps Establishment Bill, it was learnt yesterday
The two chambers of the National Assembly passed the Bill into law in 2017.
It was transmitted to the President for assent.
Buhari wrote to the Senate and the House of Representatives last week to inform lawmakers that he was withholding assent to the Bill.
The President cited security concerns and lack of funds as part of the reasons why he would not sign the Bill.
Senator Dino Melaye raised a point of order yesterday to insist President Buhari should either reconsider his position on the Bill or face a possible override by the National Assembly.
