THE Nasarawa state Commandant of Peace Corps of Nigeria, Bala Joshua, has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to reconsider his stand on the corps bill and sign it into law.

President Muhammadu Buhari had on February 27 declined to assent to the Peace Corps Bill already passed by the National Assembly, citing financial implication and duplication of duties among reasons for his
decision.

The commandant, who made the appeal on Tuesday in Lafia, when he played host to a group of disabled persons from Shabu-Lafia, said that assenting to the bill would create room for an employment opportunity and reduce youth restiveness in the country.

He maintained that the bill if, assented to, would not only fight the high rate of unemployment in the country but also help the corps to synergise with other security agencies across the country in the area of conflict resolution strategy.

He appreciated the disabled persons for the visit and assured them of his continued support in order to improve on their standard of living.
