Senate acknowledges committee’s report on NIPOST Bill

The Senate has accepted the conference committee report on the Nigeria Postal Services Act (Repeal and Re-enactment) Bill, 2022, which was submitted by the National Conference Committee.

Following the examination of the conference committee report on the bill, which was tabled by the Deputy Senate Leader, Robert Ajayi Boroffice, the measure was passed by the Senate (Ondo North).

According to Boroffice, who spoke during the plenary session on Tuesday, the committee put problems that were acceptable to the majority of stakeholders in the Nigerian postal business into the report.

He said:

“The committee observed that the version passed by the House of Representatives included further amendments made on the version passed by the Senate which exhaustively incorporates issues that are acceptable to majority of stakeholders in the Nigerian Postal industry.

“As part of the process of further engagement with the stakeholders, new facts and positions emerged and these have been fully articulated and incorporated in the version of the House of Representatives”.

He noted that, after long consideration, the Conference Committee determined and approved the Senate Version in Clauses 3(3), 28(5), 35(1), and 36(1), whereas the House of Representatives’ version of the Bill was adopted in Clauses 8(1), 9(n), 10(1), 33(t), 68(2)(b), 72(1), and 75.

Following that, the Senate passed the Conference Committee’s recommendation on the NIPOST bill for fiscal year 2022.
