BUHARI WRITES REPS, REJECTS THREE BILLS

BUHARI WRITES REPS, REJECTS THREE BILLS
President Muhammadu Buhari has withheld his assent to three bills recently passed by the National Assembly.
The bills are the “Police Procurement Fund (Establishment) Bill, 2017;” “Chartered Institute of Public Management of Nigeria Bill, 2017;” and “Nigerian Council for Social Work (Establishment) Bill, 2017.”
He conveyed his decision in a letter read by the Speaker, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, to lawmakers in plenary on Tuesday in Abuja.
In refusing to sign the bills into law, the President said he exercised his powers under Section 58(4) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).
Buhari gave reasons for withholding assent to each of the bills.

On the police fund bill, Buhari said it lacked clarity on whether the National Assembly could legislate on funds meant for the 36 states and the 774 local governments in the country.
He noted that there was a conflict with “sections 80-82 and 120-122 of the 1999 Constitution.”


As for the chartered institute bill, the President again observed that it lacked “clarity over the scope of the profession of ‘public management’ that this bill prohibits all persons who are not members of the institute from practising.”

He also informed the House that the social work bill did not clarify the scope of the “profession of ‘social work’ that this bill prohibits all persons who are not members of the institute from practising.”
