The Nigerian Senate has urged the federal government of Nigeria to give statutory backing to the existing Peace Corps of Nigeria.

This was sequel to the report of the Senate committee on judiciary, human rights and legal matters, urging the Senate to go ahead with the adoption of the conference committee report

The Senate’s move was however misunderstood in certain quarters. The Nigerian Senate has clarified the ambiguity emanating from the Nigerian Peace Corps Bill passed on Tuesday, July 25.

While Ambassador Dickson Akoh, the National Commandant of Peace Corps of Nigeria had addressed the press, thanking the National Assembly for “restoring hope to the Nigerian youths”; Dr Chinedu Nneji, Commandant General of National Unity and Peace Corps had also thanked the National Assembly for passing the bill via a media statement.

Reacting to the controversies surrounding the bill, the Senate Spokesman, Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, said the bill passed into law by the National Assembly was to give legal backing to the existing Peace Corps of Nigeria, under Akoh.
