Enang made this known while debunking reports that the President had declined assent to the highest number of bills since 1999. “Under the 8th Assembly, the highest number of bills have been passed in the life of the legislature from 1999 to date. “Also, it is President Muhammadu Buhari that has assented to and brought into law the highest number of bills. “I know that when Mr President withholds assent, the legislature looks back again at the reasons the president gives. Enang added that the president’s decisions were always in consultations with stakeholders, citing the Competition Commission Act which Mr President assented to about three months ago.
