President Buhari today signed the Endangered Species Control Bill into law. The Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Sen. Ita Enang, made this known today in Abuja while briefing State House correspondents.
Sen. Enang said the Act was one of the 10 bills forwarded to the president by the National Assembly, and that with the approval, President Buhari had completed work on all the bills sent to him for his consent.
The Endangered Species Control bill is to discourage trafficking in endangered species and also to encourage the culture of the preservation of endangered species.
With this bill, there will be an increase in penalties for violations of the provisions in line with today’s realities.
