President Muhammadu Buhari has withdrawn assent to the Radiographers Registration Amendment Bill passed by the National Assembly and transmitted to him for signing into law.

Buhari, in his letter to the legislature read by President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, at the plenary on Thursday, cited two reasons for rejecting the bill.

The letter read, “Pursuant to Section 68(4) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999, as amended, I hereby convey to the Senate my decision on the 26th June 2018 to decline the presidential assent to the Radiographers Registration Amendment Bill recently passed by the National Assembly.

“This is due to the expansion of the scope of persons covered by the bill which we are concerned would create disharmony in the health sector between radiographers and radiologists who are regulated separately.

“I also note that there is a minor error in Section 2(a) of the amendment bill where the word “substituting” is mis-spelt as “substitituting.”
