President Muhammadu Buhari has explained why he ejected the proposed bill establishing Peace Corps of Nigeria.


Buhariís explanation was contained in a letter read during plenary on Tuesday by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.

In the letter, Buhari cited security concerns and financial burden of funding the organisation by the government as his reasons for rejecting the bill.

The National Assembly had in 2015 passed the bill after a prolonged battle involving the organisation and the nationís security agencies.

The Peace Corps of Nigeria has been involved in various controversies since the bill came to limelight at the national assembly.


There are litigations currently pending before the court between Dickson Akoh, the organisationís commandant, and the Nigeria police force.
