Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has condemned a sponsored Bill to ban the sell and use of power generating sets in the country, saying the senator championing the exercise “ought to be dropped in the deepest and darkest part of the Atlantic Ocean.

Senator Bima Enagi, representing Niger South, had on Wednesday introduced a bill that seeks to ban the importation of generators in Nigeria.

The bill, titled “a bill for an Act to prohibit/ban the importation of generating sets to curb the menace of environmental (air) pollution and to facilitate the development of the power sector,” was read for the first time on Wednesday.


According to the prescription of the bill, at least, ten years imprisonment for any person who knowingly sells generator sets.

In his reaction, Fani-Kayode outrightly condemned the bill and suggested the sponsor of the bill should be punished for coming up with the idea.

The former aviation minister stated this in a tweet on Wednesday.
