BREAKING:Senate passes Peace Corps bill to beef up security

The Nigerian Senate has passed the Nigerian Peace Corps bill for final reading to provide the body with ‘a stronger framework’. Senators said there was the need to use the outfit to better protect Nigerian security and therefore approved a bill for the establishment of the Nigerian Peace Corps as an agency under the Ministry of Interior. Chairman, Committee on Interior, Senator Bayero Nafada (APC, Gombe) explained the importance of the bill thus: “The organisation will be of great benefit to the Nigerian youths (because) in response to increasing complexity of the factors responsible for insecurity and the method by which peace and security is being undermined in Nigeria, there is need to develop comprehensive, multi-sectoral, multi-stakeholders and inclusive approaches in order to stem these threats.
