Bills from the National Assembly rejected by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 alone rose to 13 on Tuesday following his rejection of five more bills transmitted to him by the lawmakers.

The bills Buhari rejected are Nigerian Film Commission bill, Immigration Amendment bill 2018, Climate Change bill 2018, Chartered Institute of Pension Practitioners bill 2018 and Digital Rights and Freedom bill.

The rejection of the bills was communicated to the lawmakers in a letter from Buhari that was read out to them during Wednesday plenary.

The President said he refused to assent to the bills as they would conflict and duplicate duties of existing government agencies, their destructive nature, as well as lack of clarity.
