A bill for an Act to establish the Nigerian Peace Corps currently before the House of Representatives is to be passed soon, House Majority Leader, Alhaji Alhassan Doguwa, has said.
A statement by the Public Relations Officer of the Peace Corps, Mrs Millicent Umoru-Osakwuaoguwa, said that Doguwa gave the assurance during the reconstitution of the State Commands of the outfit for Jigawa, Kano and Katsina, held in Kano on Thursday.
It quoted Doguwa as pledging continous support for the Peace Corps of Nigeria and its resolve to engage youths within the ages of 18 to 45, in more productive ventures.
