Why Will NASS Members Elected To Defend Constitution Pass Bill To Criminalize Protests?- Obi's Aide. Oseloka Obaze

Oseloka H Obaze, a close aide to Peter Gregory Obi, a presidential aspirant in the Labor Party, has expressed his concerns about the report of the bill to criminalize protests by the National House of Assembly Members (NASS).

The bill has passed its first reading phase, which means that if fully implemented into law, any form of protest will be considered illegal. Many Nigerians have raised questions about why such a bill would be allowed to pass.

Oseloka questioned why members of the National Assembly, who were elected to uphold and defend the constitution, would seek to pass laws that erode free speech, free assembly, dissent, and other orders and liberties. He found it inexplicable and believes that there comes a time when delusion meets reality.

He shared his thoughts on his official Twitter page, expressing his disappointment in the actions of the National Assembly members. Many Nigerians are concerned about the bill's passage and its potential impact on civil liberties and human rights in the country.
