Emir of Daura begs President Buhari to reconsider Peace Corps Bill

The Emir of Daura, His Royal Highness, Alhaji (Dr) Umar Farouk Umar, has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to rescind his decision on the Nigerian Peace Corps (Establishment) Bill. 

Alhaji Umar is the paramount ruler of the community where President Buhari hails from in Katsina state. The president had on Tuesday, February 27, transmitted to the National Assembly, his decision to withhold assent to the Bill, giving paucity of funds and duplication of duties of existing security agencies, as reasons. 

Addressing the delegation of officers of the Peace Corps of Nigeria (PCN) led by its national commandant, Dickson Akoh in his palace yesterday, the Emir commended the organization for its doggedness and for conducting itself peacefully by resorting to rule of law and advocacy in pursuing its goals. 

He said, as a father, he would look into the demands of the Corps with a view to making the Bill see the light of the day. 

The paramount ruler acknowledged that, “when the Nigerian Peace Corps Bill becomes law, it would serve as a platform for providing massive job opportunities for the Nigerian youths and creating the desired peaceful atmosphere against the prevailing height of insecurity in Nigeria.”
