Following his inauguration as President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on May 29, 2023, Bola Ahmed Tinubu signed many bills into law.
President Tinubu signed the power bill, which allows states, businesses, and people to generate, transfer, and distribute electricity. He also signed the Students Loan Bill into law on Monday, which would allow poor students to access federal government loans to fund their educational or career pursuits.
Following the signing of these bills into law, some personalities have expressed their concerns over the expeditious signing of pending bills left over from the administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari, including a former member of the Nigerian Senate, Senator Shehu Sani who on Wednesday advised the incumbent president not to be hasty in signing bills left over by the previous government.
Senator Sani’s assertion shows that President Tinubu needs to thoroughly assess the purpose and implications of the bills left over by the immediate past administration before signing them into law.
Senator Sani wrote, “Asiwaju shouldn’t be hasty in signing bills left over by the past administration.”
