Ace Nigerian musician Ayo Balogun AKA Wizkid, has lashed out at the Nigerian senators who proposed a bill to ban generators.
The singer went on twitter to blast them explicitly and pointed out that they had misplaced priorities.
The bill proposes 10 years jail term for generator importers and sellers in Nigeria and has passed the first reading in the Senate.

The bill christened
‘A Bill for an Act to prohibit/ban the importation/use of generating sets to curb the menace of environmental (air) pollution and to facilitate the development of power sector’ was sponsored by Senator Enagi Bima (APC-Niger).
According to the bill, which passed first reading at plenary,
“Any person who imports generating sets; or knowingly sells generating sets shall be guilty of an offence and be liable on conviction to be sentenced to imprisonment for a term not less than 10 years.
“Provided that this subsection shall not apply to the importation or sale of any generating set to be used for essential services.”
Meanwhile, Wizkid and other Nigerians have not taken the bill in happy fashion.
Fucking dick heads! Give us 24hr electricity first
