Senator Ibn Na’Allah on the second of December proposed a new bill before the senate assembly in Nigeria. The draft bill with the tag “A bill for an Act to Prohibit Frivolous Petitions and other Matters Connected Therewith” seeks a two-year jail term for any individual who makes an allegation or publishes a statement or petition via newspapers, radio or any other medium ( this includes all social platforms) against another person, institutions of government or any public office holder.
The bill goes on to state that it shall be an offence for any petition to be submitted without a sworn affidavit from the law court.
“Any petition and or complains not accompanied by a sworn affidavit shall be incompetent and shall not be used by any government institution, agency or bodies established by any law for the time being enforced in Nigeria.
“Any person who unlawfully uses, publish or cause to be published any petition, complaint not supported by a dully sworn affidavit shall be deemed to have committed an offence and upon conviction, shall be liable to an imprisonment for six months without an option of fine.
“Any person who acts, uses, or cause to be used any petition or complaints not accompanied by dully sworn affidavit shall be deemed to have committed an offence and upon conviction, shall be liable to an imprisonment for a term of two years or a fine of N200,000.00 or both, “the petition read.
