Breaking: Buhari Signs Polytechnic, National Institute For Security Bills Into Law

President Muhammad Buhari has signed two bills into law, including the National Institute for Security Bill and the Federal Polytechnic amendments Bill.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (House of Representatives) Umar Yakubu, briefed State House correspondents on Tuesday.

He said that the Federal Polytechnic amendment bill seeks to amend the Federal Polytechnic Act cap 17 of the laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004,

The new amendment, he said, seeks to harmonize the tenure of the Rectors of the Federal Polytechnics, the retirement age of the staff of the Polytechnics, as well as the establishment of the Governing Council for the Polytechnics and membership of the Council.

According to the new law, he said that membership of the Councils will be a five-man Council and will be Chaired by a Chairman.

He said that the law also provides that such membership must be a reflection of the Federal Character.

Each Polytechnics Council under the new law, he said, must have a female member as well as a person representing the area where the Polytechnics are located.

The new law, he said, also provided that each Rector is expected to serve a single term of five years.

“This means that where anyone is currently appointed to serve for four years, it shall be extended to five years.” he added

Yakubu said that the new law on the National Institute of Security Studies seeks to establish that institute with the view to ensuring that both the middle and senior managers in the Security sector have their competences built and that they will be trained to build their capacity

The Bill also established standards for agency relationships, with the views to harmonize their relationships for efficient and harmonious relationships amongst the inter-agencies locally and globally.
