President Buhari Signs 8 Bills Into Law

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday signed eight bills passed by the National Assembly into law.

Ita Enang, the Special Adviser to the President on National Assembly Matters, Senate, disclosed this on Friday in Abuja, while briefing State House correspondents.

According to him, the bills signed into law are: 

- Prevention of Crime Amendment Act,‎ 2016; 

- The National Crop Varieties and Livestock Breeds (Registration) Amendment Act‎, 2016.

-Telecommunications and Postal Offences Amendment Act,‎ 2016

- The National Agricultural Land Development Authority Amendment Act‎ 2016; 

-The Produce Enforcement of Export Standards Amendment Act‎ 2016.

-The Agricultural and Rural Management ‎Training Institute Amendment Act‎ 2016; 

-Bee Import Control and Management Amendment Act‎ 2016; 

- Water Resources Amendment Act‎ 2016‎.

Mr. Enang said that the President expressed appreciation to leadership and members of National Assembly “for the great work they did in considering the bills and the details that have gone in to consider the bills‎.

“Mr President considers the act as very vital to the present administration and in consonant with ‎All Progressive Congress’s agenda and thanked the National Assembly.’’

He said the president also directed Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) and all government functionaries to always participate actively and make inputs when new bills were being considered.

Mr. Enang commended the president for assenting the eight bills at a time, saying “this is unprecedented because this is the very first time in this administration that eight bills are forwarded to him at a go for assent.

“In all my years in the National Assembly except for the 46 bills which were passed a day to the end of that administration, no such number of bills had been passed and forwarded at once ‎to the president for assent and no such number of bills had been assented to, at a record time.

“I also consider it a record, that bills have been passed on various sector‎ and in giving assent to the bill, it did not lead to rancour or disputation as to what should be and what should not be.

“This shows that the executive and the legislature are working together because the ministers attended every hearing that was called in respect of the bills.”



  1. I pray this bills moved the nations forward.

  2. Rubbish!who the bill help!stella come to Daddy.

  3. Are these acts, bills and laws are irrelevant to the average Nigerian.

    Wait! Did I just see Bee import?

    Na wah for all these geriatric leaders oh!

  4. I see agriculture everywhere. My boss was right 👏🏽👏🏽 Can't wait 💃🏽

  5. What of "Poverty Must Not Kill My People"
    Where's Fela Anikulapo Kuti, we need a new song, one that can be passed down from generation to generation so our great grand kids can know what we passed through in a season tagged "Change"

  6. Clap 4 ya self. ..

  7. This is quite dumb and the Enang is dumber than the situation. There is not single bill that looks like it's geared towards economic upliftment. I might be novice but when I see sensible I'm pretty sure I'll recognise it.

    1. My dear, they are bills to improve the agricultural sector and trust me it's a great move. Do a little research on bee keeping, sale of honey and bees wax

  8. The ones wey dey ground already, wetin dem don use am do? The ones wey affect the common man go dey pending. Nonsense

  9. Strong supporter of my president Buhari, but Mr.Ita this hype is unnecessary. First time bla bla...

  10. I support Buhari but I am waiting for the day he announces that he and his team will build a high-tech multi-complex hospital to cater to Nigerians. #NoMoreTravellingToIndia for treatment. It can be done. Too many preventable deaths.

  11. I support Buhari but I am waiting for the day he announces that he and his team will build a high-tech multi-complex hospital to cater to Nigerians. #NoMoreTravellingToIndia for treatment. It can be done. Too many preventable deaths.

  12. Anything for the betterment of this country,

  13. These bills are just there. Nothing serious here that looks like what will take us out of recession anytime soon.

  14. What should I do with his signing this into law?
    How does it affect me?
    Why wont they sign something that,has to do with rape,and domestic violence into law?
    Gender equality bill nko?
    Bill to stop mass sacking nko?
    Anyway,our BuBu was/is a farmer,so anything that has to do with his field will be priority.

  15. Wow!! Those bills that the president signed if well enacted could help and save many Nigerians.
    I just keep praying and hoping that God help and rescue Nigeria and Nigerians from the hands of sabotage.

  16. God help our country,I hope everything changes for good not just to sign in New laws.
