Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that President Muhammadu Buhari declined assent to two more bills transmitted to him from the National Assembly.
President Buhari conveyed his decision to withdraw assent to the two bills in two separate letters to the Senate president and read at plenary on Wednesday, May 8.
Giving reasons for declining assent, President Buhari said section 14(d), section 30(2d) of the Nigeria Tourism Development Authority (Repeal and re-enactment) bill contradicts section 4 (1-3) and paragraph 60 (d) of the second schedule of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).
