Peace Corps of Nigeria news
The National Human Right Commission (NHRC) has vowed to investigate the refusal of the Nigeria Police and the inspector general of police to unseal the headquarters of the Peace Corps of Nigeria (PCN) in Abuja.
The national commandant of the Peace Corps of Nigeria (PCN), Dickson Akoh, has said that the agency's bill is still on course. Akoh said the bill still stands to guide the functionality of the Peace Corps of Nigeria.
The National Commandant of Peace Corps of Nigeria (PCN), Ambassador Dickson Akoh, says the bill to establish Nigerian Peace Corps was still on course and not dead, contrary to some media reports suggesting the bill was dead.
This was contained in a judgement delivered on Friday, May 25, by Justice Ahmed Ramat Mohammed, in a fundamental human rights enforcement suit instituted against the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in 2013.
The first of this back-down was seen after Karimi who had sponsored overriding the bill through its first reading reneged leaving the bill at the mercy of members of the committee on rules and business for two months.
