Saraki, represented by Sen. Philip Aduda said: “It is disturbing to note that there is a general lack of belief in government by the citizens.

Saraki noted that the strength of Nigeria with a population of nearly 200 million lay in its diversity.

“If we could be more tolerant of our differences and see ourselves as brothers and sisters, it will be difficult to rise against one another,” he said.

He further explained that the Bill sought to provide a framework for the activities of Global Initiative for Harmony in Nigeria Corps under the supervision of the Director-General of NOA.
