He read a letter written to the lawmakers by the president.

In the letter, Buhari said he withheld assent to the bill on police procurement because of the lack of clarity on the distribution of funds.

He added that there were also constitutional issues regarding the powers of the national assembly to appropriate funds covered in the bill.

Buhari also said the rejection of the bill on the chartered institute of public management of Nigeria and that of the Nigeria council for social work was due to lack of clarity in their provisions preventing members of the institute and council respectively from practising.
