The former Minister of Aviation under ex-president Goodluck Johnatha, Femi Fani-Kayode, has reacted to the bill seeking to ban importation of generators in Nigeria by a Senator representing Niger South, Muhammad Bima.
According to Fani-Kayode, Bima’s introduction of such a bill is an insane decision seeking to jail those who sell and use generator in Nigeria.
Bima had introduced the bill and it scaled through first reading on the floor of the senate, on Wednesday.
The bill, which is entitled ‘Generating Set (Prohibition/Ban) Bill, 2020,” also seeks to curb the menace of environmental (air) pollution and to facilitate the development of the power sector.
Fani-Kayode, however said the Senator should be tied and dropped in the darkest part of the Atlantic ocean.
In a tweet, the former Minister wrote: “The Senator that sponsored the Bill to ban generators in Nigeria & send those that sell or use them to jail must be insane.
“He ought to be tied up, placed in a straight jacket, put in a strong sack filled with weights and dropped in the deepest & darkest part of the Atlantic ocean.”
