Finally, Peace Corps Nigeria Dies A Natural Dead, as House of Reps Kill The Bill

The House of Representatives has dashed any hope of reviving the Peace Corps bill.
The bill seeks to turn the Peace Corps, currently a non-governmental organisation, into a government para-military agency.

The bill, which had been passed by the National Assembly was rejected by President Muhammadu Buhari, who refused to sign it into law.
Some lawmakers had planned to veto the president’s rejection.
However, on Thursday, the bill failed to pass the second reading at the House of Representatives.
The bill was sponsored by Emmanuel Orker-Jev (APC, Benue).
