After declining assent to many bills sent to him by the National Assembly, President Muhammadu Buhari has again rejected two bills already signed into law by the House of Representatives.
The recent bills are the Chartered Institute of Training and Development of Nigeria Bill and the Nigerian Aeronautic Research Rescue Bill.
House of Representatives Speaker, Yakubu Dogara read the president’s communication at plenary on Tuesday.
Mr Dogara read: “The president declines assent to the chartered institute of training and development of Nigeria bill.
“This is because there are concerns that the Institute does not possess the capacity of the requirements that might be imposed on it if the bill is assented to.
“And some aspects of the bill might run fowl of the stipulated guidelines as they should be,” he said.
On the Nigerian Aeronautic Research Rescue Bill, he said, “Presidential decision to decline assent to this bill is because of the numerous discrepancies of the bill which makes it not in tandem with international best practices guiding the aviation industry worldwide.
“Certain sections are just a duplication of the functions of NEMA and other Agencies.”
