Senator representing Ekiti south, Abiodun Olujimi, reintroduced the bill after it was rejected in October 2015, when some members opposed it on the grounds that it was in conflict with their religious and cultural beliefs.
Today, while speaking on the bill, Olujimi explained that the bill did not seek to undermine the beliefs of the Nigerians but it was to create equal opportunities for women.
She: ”It seeks to promote equality and development of all persons in Nigeria,” she said. To guarantee effectiveness, the bill adopts special measures on discrimination against persons.
It provides that all appropriate measures be taken to eliminate discrimination against women in private and public life. It also prohibits all forms of violence against women, whether political, domestic or cultural. It prohibits all forms of trafficking in women.”
Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, speaking on the bill, said that some sections of the bill were already in the constitution. He further suggested that those sections be looked into at the committee stage.
However, Olusola Adeyeye, senate chief whip, disagreed with him, saying that affirmative laws were needed to address the problem of gender inequality.
Senate President Bukola Saraki, after a brief debate on the bill, called a voice vote, and the senate voted overwhelmingly for it to pass second reading. Saraki thereafter referred the bill to the committee on judiciary, human rights and legal matters for more legislative treatment…. in any hospital within d country….
