Others are National Institute for Brackish Water Fisheries Research, Ngo-Andoni (Est, etc) Bill, Nigeria Council for Management Development Bill, Traffic Warden Service Bill and Nigeria Road Safety Commission Bill.

The passage followed the presentation of the bills by the Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan, at a plenary presided over by Senate President Bukola Saraki in Abuja.

Presenting the eight bills, Lawan said having gone through the rigorous screening in the lower house, they deserve attention from the upper house and urged senators consider them for quick passage.

When Saraki put the question on a voice vote the lawmakers unanimously adopted it.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the eight bills, which were given accelerated hearing, would be transmitted to President Muhammadu Buhari for his assent.
