THE House of Representatives on Thurday

buried the hope of reviving the Peace Corps bill.

The bill, sponsored by Emmanuel Orker-Jev (APC, Benue) seeks to turn the Peace Corps, currently a non-governmental organisation, into a government para-military agency.

The National Assembly had earlier passed the bill. On sending it to President Muhammadu Buhari for his assent, the president refused to sign it into law, sending it back to the two chambers.

Buhari stated that his reason for refusal was because of scarcity of resources.
