OrderPaperToday – Senator representing Kogi west senatorial district in the National Assembly, Smart Adeyemi, has said he will introduce bills that will propose cutting of hands.
This according to him will stop corruption in the country.
He stated this over the weekend while speaking with reporters.
Adeyemi said: “Like I said on the floor of the senate, if we want this country to be great, we must look at some acts of parliament, moreso the ones that have to do with anti-graft agencies. I want my children to be happier than I am in Nigeria and to do that there must be enough money to meet the needs and aspirations of the people.
“What am I talking about? Let us confront corruption. Very soon I’m coming back to the chamber to bring bills on ICPC and EFCC. I want us to introduce Mosaic law, what you call Shariah law. By the time you cut the hands of 10, 20 people in this country, nobody will want to steal again.”
He equally suggested that those found guilty of corruption should be punished to work as farmers for the country.
“By the time you say two, three people should face serious punishment… if you say that is too harsh let us have mechanised agriculture of about 200, 250 acres, once you are involved in corruption, you will spend your life farming for us. We must look at how we can make Nigeria a better place,” the senator added.
