The Conference of Nigeria Political Party (CNPP), Edo Chapter, on Saturday, commended President Muhammadu for such bold step and futuristic evaluation over his rejection of Peace Corps bill.
The chapter chairman, Mr Roy Oribhabor, while speaking to NAN in Benin said; “As it were, we already have several security agencies whose function or mandates overlap; creating another one in the name of creating employment will create chaos in the system”.
“This is why the Edo CNPP wishes to commend the President for such bold step and futuristic evaluation of the situation.
“However, to fight unemployment, we believe that qualified members of Peace Corps can be recruited into sister agencies like police and civil defense. Edo CNPP strongly believed that the rejection of Peace Corp bill was done in good fate for the betterment of Nigeria and Nigerians.
“Therefore, we call on Nigerians and affected members of the public, particularly members of the corps, not to view it as hatred or lack of concern by the president but accept the decision without disappointment.
“Research conducted by us shown that Nigerians are happy with the rejection, but call on Mr President to prevail on the sister agencies to recruit them accordingly. Too many security agencies will give room for lack of proper coordination and clashes within security arrangement.
“Finally, Edo CNPP urges PMB to maintain his stand in spite of the open shows of opposition demonstrated so far by some persons without considering the financial implications.”
