Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, has condemned the Senator representing Niger South, Muhammad Bima, for introducing a bill seeking to ban importation of generators in Nigeria.
Fani-Kayode described Bima as insane for seeking to jail those who sell generators in Nigeria.
Yesterday, it was revealed that the senate introduced a bill to ban the use of generators in Nigeria, where it passed its first reading.
If the bill titled ‘Generating Set (Prohibition/Ban) Bill’ is eventually signed into law, it will prohibit the use of generator sets in Nigeria.
However, according to Premium Times, the ban will not include generator sets used for essential services such as: Medical purposes, airports, railway stations/services, elevators, escalators, research institutions and facilities that require 24 hours power supply.
However, Fani-Kayode 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.”
