When citizens refuse to take initiative, should we have to wait for God?
In a nation as religiously volatile as Nigeria, our leaders should be compelled to make laws on dressing firstly because we have proven that we prefer to convert private property (our bodies) to public liabilities , and that has resulted in various crimes.
Also, Sudan, through Article 152 of her Criminal Code enacted a similar law in 1991 and the rate of sexual offences has reduced drastically. But in Nigeria, our sisters are still violated, our fiancés are raped! What exactly are our leaders waiting for?
We may recognize the freedom of expression and initiative, but as Thomas Fortune said in 1927, necessity supersedes all laws. It has therefore become imperative that our leaders step into the arena of conflict and salvage the situation. The earlier our leaders take responsibility, the better for us.
