President Muhammadu Buhari has rejected another seventeen out of the three hundred and eighteen bills passed by the Eighth National Assembly.
Golden News Now reports that the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang, made this known in a chat with journalists on Wednesday, July 3.
Senator Enang also revealed that President Buhari signed nine bills into law that were previously passed by the eighth National Assembly.
The President’s Senior Special Assistant added that Buhari decided not to communicate with the Ninth Assembly on the rejection of those bills because the new lawmakers cannot take any decision on the rejected bills as prescribed by the law.

Enang listed the bills signed by the President to include…
1. Adeyemi Federal University of Education (Establishment) Bill
