The Presidency on Sunday night said the President Muhammadu Buhari would continue to work with the National Assembly to make laws and pursue reforms that would promote the growth and prosperity of Nigeria.
The Presidency, in a tweet on its verified Twitter handle@NGRPresident, cited eight of the reform bills President Buhari had assented to in the last 18 months, including the most recent Bank and other Financial Institutions (BOFI) Act 2020.

“The @MBuhari Administration will continue to work with the National Assembly to advance the legislative reform necessary for laying a solid foundation for the growth and prosperity of Nigeria.
“Some of the landmark Bills assented to by the President in the last 18 months include: Police Trust Fund Act, 2019; Correctional Service Act, 2019; Deep Offshore and Inland Basin PSC Amendment Act, 2019; Finance Act, 2019; AMCON (Amendment) Act, 2019;
Nigeria Police Force Act, 2020; CAM Act, 2020; and BOFI Act 2020”, the tweet read.
It would be recalled that the demand for a restructuring of the country came before the recent #EndSARS protests against police brutality which degenerated into widespread violence in which many lives were lost, including those of security operatives, and property worth billions of naira looted or destroyed.
