By James Ewaoche Amedu

Senator Godswill Akpabio yesterday stood firmly against consideration and passage of the bill for the establishment of the Peace Corps of Nigeria, linking it to the controversial ponzi scheme, Mavrodi Mondial Movement (MMM).

When Vice Chairman of the committee, Bayero Nafada, moved a motion that the report of the conference committee be considered, Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, opposed it.

Akpabio said the organization was operating illegally and has been involved in unlawful collection of money from applicants. He warned that passing the bill, to legalise NPC would be wrong.

In his ruling, Senate President, Bukola Saraki, said the Bill would be stepped down, pending the resolution of certain grey areas identified in the report.

“We also need to relate with our brothers in the Green Chamber who have adopted this report earlier,” Saraki added.

Thereafter, the bill was forwarded to the Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, “to consult and appropriately advice Senate on its next legislative action.”

Meanwhile, Nigerians have knocked Akpabio hard for working against the interest of the youths.

Sam Maji, an applicant of the PCN described Akpabio as a big thief who should be thrown into prison.

“See a big thief calling another person thief, people like Akpabio and Manager should be in prison by now. It is obvious they want us to remain jobless.”

Another James Omagaji described the rejection of the bill as the handwork of an enemy within. He asked Akoh to look around and he would see the man behind his ordeal.

“This is a case of an enemy within. Akoh and PCN should look around, we all know who is behind this.”
