The Senate has adopted the Conference Committee report on the Nigeria Peace Corps (Establishment) Bill, 2023.

The highlight of the adopted report was clause 38 (1) of the Senate version, which was in conflict with the House version under the same clause.

The Senate’s version seeks the dissolution of the existing Peace Corps of Nigeria and National Unity and Peace Corps.

The House recommended the dissolution of the Peace Corps of Nigeria to be transformed into the Nigerian Peace Corps when assented to by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The report, however, agreed that for a bill to become an act of parliament in Nigeria, it must pass through both National Assembly chambers.
