The spokesperson for the Nigerian Senate, Ajibola Basiru (Osun Central) has alleged that the country is operating on dead laws which are no longer useful in the 21st century.
The senate spokesperson expressed this view during a live political session on social media; Politics Everywhere with SOK.
Senator Basiru said Nigeria should declare a state of emergency on its laws stating that the Bukola Saraki led senate attempted to correct some of the anomalies in the country’s laws.
He referred to an instance where 130 bills were passed in one day but the President refused to assent to most of them.
Senator Basiru also identified poor funding of the senate as a hindrance to fixing obsolete laws.
