The bill, sponsored by Borno senator, Ali Ndume, seeks to give legal backing to the establishment of the Peace Corps as a government parastatal and allow its members to be absorbed into the proposed organisation at commencement.

They also approved another bill seeking legal backing for the establishment of a council for hunters across the country.

This followed the consideration of two reports on the bills by the Committee on Interior during Tuesday’s plenary at the upper chamber of the National Assembly in Abuja.

During the session presided by Senate President Ahmad Lawan, Chairman of the Committee, Senator Sadiq Umar, had moved that the lawmakers receive and consider the reports – an action that was seconded by Senator Nora Daduut.

The lawmakers, thereafter, resolved into a committee of the whole to consider the two reports ‘clause by clause’ and after they reverts to plenary to report progress, both bills were read the third time and passed.
