Others are National Institute of Credit Administration (Est, etc) Bill, 2018; Digital Rights and Freedom (Est, etc) Bill, 2018 and Nigerian Film Corporation (repeal & Re-enactment) Bill, 2018.

The Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan, explained that after critical examination of the Bills, the Directorate of Legal Services of the National Assembly observed some fundamental issues which required fresh legislative action on some clauses in the bills.

The bills and the affected clauses are:

Nigerian Aeronautical Search and Rescue Bill, 2018 – Clause 2 (1)(2).

Climate Change (Est, etc) Bill, 2018 – Clause 2 (1)(4), 3(1)(f), 5(2), 7(1)(a) (2)(a), 8, 9, 17(1).

Nigerian Film Corporation (repeal & Re-enactment) Bill, 2018 – Clause 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 and 19.

He urged the Senate to rescind its decision on the affected Clauses of the Bills as passed and recommit same to the Committee of the Whole for reconsideration and passage in accordance with Order 1(b) and 53(6) of Senate Standing Order.

The lawmaker also stated that a technical committee of the Senate, House of Representatives and Directorate of Legal Services met and worked on the clauses.

The Senate then resolved into the committee of the whole, reconsidered and passed the bills.
