NOvember 29, (THEWILL) – President Muhammadu Buhari has written to the Senate, seeking the legalisation and Institutionalisation of the Social Investment Programme in Nigeria (NSIP).
In a letter to the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, President Buhari requested the lawmakers to consider and approve an executive bill forwarded to it to that effect.
The letter reads: “Pursuant to Section 8(2) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended, I forward herewith the National Social Investment Programme Bill for the kind consideration of the Senate.
“The bill seeks to provide a legal framework for the establishment of the National Social Investment Programme for the assistance and empowerment of the poor and vulnerable people in Nigeria.”
In another letter, Buhari also sought for concurrence of the Senate to the National Park Declaration Order, made earlier in the year for the establishment of 10 New National Parks across the country.
He also requested the consideration and passage of the National Library Establishment Bill 2022.
The proposed law, according to him, would provide the legal framework for the maintenance of the National Library of Nigeria and strengthen its statutory functions.
Similarly, the President also urged the Senate to consider the passage of an executive bill on the Federal Produce Inspection Service.
