Just in: Buhari signs three Bills into law, hails Lawan, Gbajabiamila
President Muhammadu Buhari has signed into law, three bills aimed at improving the anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing/proliferation frameworks in the country.
The bills signed yesterday were the Money Laundering (Prevention and Prohibition) Bill, 2022, the Terrorism (Prevention and Prohibition) Bill, 2022, and the Proceeds of Crime (Recovery and Management) Bill, 2022.
Speaking at a brief signing ceremony at the Council Chamber at the State House, Abuja, the president described the bills as being in tandem with his administration’s commitment to fight corruption and illicit financing activities, as well as critical to the governance agenda and the development of Nigeria.
The president lauded the Assembly under Senate President, Dr Ahmed Lawan and House Speaker, Hon Femi Gbajabiamila and their colleagues for responding to his request, saying they have certainly carved out a worthy legacy for themselves.
