The Currency Conversion (Freezing Orders) Act (Amendment) Bill, 2015 (” the Bill”) is
sponsored by Hon. Ahmed Idris (Plateau State). The Bill has been passed by both
chambers of the National Assembly and was transmitted to the President for assent. The
Acting President, via a letter read at a plenary session of each chamber of the National
Assembly on 22nd February 2017, informed the National Assembly that presidential
assent has been withheld because “the modalities for communicating asset forfeiture
orders were unacceptable”. The Bill has been referred to the legal department of the
National Assembly for review.
