Buhari: Why I rejected five bills from National Assembly


The newly rejected bills included: Nigerian Film Corporation Bill, Immigration (Amendment) Bill, Climate Change Bill, Chartered Institute of Pension Practitioners Bill as well as Digital Rights and Freedom Bill.

Revealing why he refused to sign the bills, Buhari said:

“I refused assent on the Immigration Bill because it would have adverse effect on Nigeria’s position on the ease of doing business ranking if signed into law.

“ The Chartered Institute of Pension Practitioners Bill amounted to duplication of functions with an existing institute.”

“Also, conflicting and duplication of duties of existing government agencies, their destructive nature, as well as lack of clarity in other bills.

Saraki who presided over the plenary, however assured lawmakers that a technical committee will look into rejected bills by the president.
