The Member Representing Ado/ Obadigbo/Opkokwu federal Constituency at the green Chambers Rt Honorable Hassan Saleh on friday 30th 2018 said that the National Assembly was in the process of making sure the Nigerian Peace Corps Bill be passed into law. The Bill which was rejected by President Buhari early this Year seeks to establish the Nigerian Peace Corps as a government financed paramilitary organisation under the ministry of Interior.
Hon Hassan Saleh made this remarks at the burial of Late Dr Clement Idoko Ogbeh who is the younger brother of the Honorable Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Dr. Audu Innocent Ogbeh. Speaking to Journalist after the burial, Hassan stressed the importance of the Peace Corps Bill stating that, the NPC bill was in conjunction with the aspirations and wishes of President Buhari to create more jobs for the ever-increasing unemployed Nigerian Youths.
Hon Saleh described the Peace Corps Bill as a very popular Bill and the news of the President not given accent to the Bill came as a rude shock to him. He went further to express confidence in the steps taking by He and his colleagues at the National Assembly towards overriding the decision of the President as it falls under their Constitutional right and as such there was still hope and light at the end of the tunnel.
Saleh also described the death of Late Dr Clement Ogbeh as a great loss to Idoma Land. He described the Ogbeh family as his own Family and his presence was not about politics but rather he came to mourn a brother. Late Clement Idoko Ogbeh died in an auto crash on his way to Otukpa from Abuja to attend to some developmental issues.
