Senate Approves Establishment Of Nigerian Peace Corps

The Senate on Tuesday at last passed a bill to make the Nigerian Peace Corps a para-military office. 
The Senate embraced the meeting report on the bill to set up the Nigerian Peace Corps, after it was so
exhorted by its board on legal, human rights and legitimate issues.

Both the Senate and the House of Representatives had independently passed the bill a year ago. 

In any case, after the harmonization of the two separate bills, the Senate had rejected the blended form, which has now been affirmed. 

The bill will be sent to President Muhammadu Buhari for consent after the House additionally affirms the fit rendition. 

It is not clear if the administration will support of the bill as a few offices in the official including the police and the military are against the legitimization of the Peace Corps which is right now a private NGO.
