The Federal Government has sought the approval of the National Assembly to establish the Civil Defence, Correctional, Federal Fire and Immigration Services Board.

This is contained in a letter dated Feb. 9, by President Muhammadu Buhari and read by the President of Senate, Dr Ahmad Lawan, at plenary on Tuesday.

Mr Buhari explained that the request was made in pursuant to the provision of Section 58(2) of the 1999 Constitution as amended.

Pursuant to Section 58(2) of 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended), I forward, herewith, The Civil Defence, Correctional, Federal Fire and Immigration Services Board Bill, 2022 for the kind consideration of the Senate.

The Civil Defence, Correctional, Federal Fire and Immigration Services Board Bill, 2022 seeks to establish the Civil Defence, Correctional, Federal Fire and Immigration Services Board.

It is to adequately reflect the current relationship between the Board, Corps and the Services and align their composition, structure, functions and practices to attain the intended mandate of the services.

While hoping that this submission will receive the usual expeditious consideration of the Senate, please accept, Distinguished Senate President, the assurances of my highest consideration, he said.
