Governor Bala Muhammed of Bauchi State has on Wednesday signed the Violence Against Person Prohibition (VAPP) bill into law.
The governor made the announcement to the public via his confirmed twitter handle.
“Today, I signed the Violence Against Person Prohibition Bill into law,” the governor tweeted.
He added that five other bills (two member bills and four executive bills) were signed by him.
“The other bills signed are the Bauchi State 2020 Revised Budget, renaming of the College of Health Technology, Ningi to Bill and Melinda Gates College of Health Technology Ningi, and renaming of the College of Nursing and Midwifery.
“Others are the Bauchi State Public Procurement Act 2020 and renaming of the AD Rufai College of Legal Studies to AD Rufai college of Education and legal studies,” he added.
The governor commended the effort of the Bauchi state house of assembly for their productiveness, patriotism and nationalism.
According to him, irrespective of the difference in party, the resolve to meet the yearnings of the Bauchi state people remain sacrosanct.
Recall that last year November members of the public carried out a peaceful demonstration and called for state Assemblies to domesticate the act into law.
