NEWS UPDATE: Buhari moves to check influx of small arms, light weapons writes to Senate

As Nigeria keep on confronting the flood of little arms and light weapons, President Muhammadu Buhari has composed the Senate to administer on “The Control of Small Arms and Light Weapons bill, 2021.”

A duplicate of the letter located by DAILY POST on Tuesday demonstrated that the bill, when passed into law would communicate the momentum Presidential Committee into a National Center for the Control of Small Arms and Light Weapons to be trained in the Office of the National Adviser.

Citing arrangements of the Constitution Buhari said: “As per Section 58(2) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as changed), I forward herewith, the Control of Small Arms and Light Weapons Bill 2021 for the benevolent thought by the Senate.

“The Control of Small Arms and Light Weapons 2021 tries to change the Presidential Committee on Small Arms and Light Weapons into a National Center for the Control of Small Arms and Light Weapons under the Office of the National Security Adviser.

“National Center for the Control of Small Arms and Light Weapons, when completely operationalized, would go far at communicating Nigeria’s idealism and viable obligation to the worldwide battle against the multiplication of Small Arms and Light Weapons, including the cleaning up of existing Small Arms and Light Weapons which have turned into a huge driver of frailty across the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“While trusting that this accommodation will get the standard speedy thought of the Senate, Please acknowledge, Distinguished Senate President, the affirmations of my most elevated consideration.”

The upper and lower Chambers on Tuesday continued seating following a two-month yearly recess.
