It was gathered that the transmission of the bill for the President to sign into law by the Clerk to the National Assembly, CNA, Sani Magaji Tambuwal was carried out last through a letter written to that effect.
It was also reported that the letter written on the letterhead of the CNA, was dated 12th April 2023 and directly addressed to President Muhammadu Buhari.
It is further reported that three copies of the authenticated copies of the bills were forwarded to the President for assent, one of which is expected to be retained by him and the other two, sent back to the National Assembly for further action.
In line with provisions of the 1999 Constitution, President Buhari is expected to assent to the bill on or before 11th May 2023 when 30 days window given for such important action must have been exploited.
