President Muhammadu Buhari has again declined assent to two more bills transmitted to him from the National Assembly, bringing the number of rejected bills to 41 since june 9, 2015.

President Buhari conveyed his decision to withdraw assent to the Nigeria Tourism Development Authority bill and Nigeria Inland Waterways Authority bill in two separate letters to Senate President, Bukola Saraki and read at plenary .

Giving reasons for declining assent, President Buhari said section 14(d), section 30(2d) of the Nigeria Tourism Development Authority bill contradicts some section of the 1999 constitution as amended.

He argued that section 30 of the bill proposed tourism fee on all in-bound international travelers, tourism levy on all out-bound travelers and one per cent tourism departure contribution fee per hotel room rate.
