Dino Melaye, a former Kogi state-federal senator, has lodged a complaint against the National Assembly for violating his right to life.
Speaker of the House of Representatives Femi Gbajabiamila introduced the controversial bill aimed at strengthening the Nigeria Center for Disease Control and the Ministry of Health in times of global health crisis.
Among other items, the bill aims to make possession of a health card compulsory for foreign travellers who leave or arrive in Nigeria just like a yellow fever passport.
Melaye said he filed the suit FHC / ABJ / CS/463/2020 in Abuja, Monday, May 4, 2020, before the Federal High Court.
See Documents Below:
Clerk of the National Assembly, Clerk and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Procurator-General of the Federation and Inspector-General of Police are included as defendants in the complaint.
He shared this information via his twitter handle.
His Tweet reads:
“COVID-19 Vaccine: I have just filed a court action against the Speaker and House of Representatives on the wicked bill initiated by Hon Femi Gbajabiamila this morning at the Federal High Court Abuja. We shall overcome. “Clerk of the House of Representatives has been served court processes of my case filed today.”
