Reps propose six months jail term for anyone that jumps queues

The House of Representatives is proposing a six months jail term for anyone caught jumping queues in public places. The bill which is currently on the floor of the house, scaled second reading yesterday June 1st.

According to the sponsor of the bill, Abubakar Amuda-Kannike (Kwara-APC), the bill if passed will ensure that Nigerians conduct themselves orderly in public places.


“The bill underscores the need to re-awaken a derailed national culture by proposing disciplinary measures to guide Nigerians in their daily behaviours. In our society today, out of total disregard for other persons, who strive to do the right thing by conducting themselves orderly in public places, a large number of Nigerians distort queues and go unpunished. The bill if passed shall provide a starting point of value and cultural re-orientation in Nigeria. The bill underscores the need to re-awaken the derailed national culture by proposing disciplinary measures to guide Nigerians in their daily behaviors. Any nation that is not organised cannot have rapid growth. We should be seen as organised people from point of entry but we have accepted that anything goes. Every school should have civic education in its curriculum to instil patriotism and orderliness in the country”he said

Another lawmaker, Sam Onuigbo who spoke in favor of the bill, said that it would among other things, ensure orderliness, equity, fairness and justice in the distribution of services in the country.

“It will be nice for us to be seen as orderly people from the point of entry into the country,” Onuigbo said.

STUPID PEOPLE!
Jus negodu the level of ignorance in this LOUSY nation!

OH WHAT A SHAME!!!

A nation in recession, the only thing bothering them is to jail for 6 months, a person jumping queue!
YET THESE BARBARIANS WOULD STILL BE THE FIRST TO JUMP QUEUES: From very regular queues, to traffic lights, to ATM and the list goes on!

Oh God Forgive them for though they know very well what they are doing, IGNORANCE wouldn't just let them repent and seek the KINGDOM OF GOD!!!

Ndi nzuzu!
SHAME ON Y'all!!!

The Law makers should think of how to reduce their income for the purpose of building industries that will generate employment in the six geo -political zones to ease the hardship in the country to some extent. Let the recovered loots be utilized for tangible infra structure to will out live this regime.
please our legislators 6 month is too much punishment for the offence mentioned.
Let the culprite go and do some measurable fame which will add value to our system.

They cart home huge sums of money as salaries and allowances, monthly. Why then wont they leave their core duties and embark on mundane stuffs. There is nothing a 'blac-kman' will never think and worry his head about. Sorry!

Excellent! Nigeria is a country bedeviled by lawlessness from young and old. The citizenry needs a little prodding often to ensure civility and good neigbourliness. One good job from our worthless parliament.
