Bill Seeking To Make Sharia A Federal Law Quietly Passes 2nd Reading by lonecat: 7:19pm On Nov 04, 2016
was shocked to watch the live proceedings of the House of Representatives as covered by NTA2 and saw that the bill calling for the criminal aspects of Islamic Sharia law to be implemented in our legal system in Nigeria at the Federal and states passed the second reading on Thursday, October 28, 2016.

I was even more shocked because even though there were many Christians in the House no one raised an objection!

The Speaker of the House, Hon Yakubu Dogara, who presided over the proceedings said that what this meant was that it would now move to committee level where it will be discussed fully before the House would decide on it finally, but it is curious that not even one voice of dissent was aired against it!

I waited till 9pm to hear what NTA Network news would report about it, but there was a blackout of reportage about it!

Of course, other issues discussed and decided in the House on same day were reported but not this one! The bill to amend the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to make provision for the full implementation of Sharia Criminal law at the federal and states legal system has passed the second reading in the House of Representatives and no one is telling Nigerians what is happening!

For all we know, when a bill passes the second reading unchallenged in parliament it is almost as good as passed.

Long before the 2nd Republic, Muslim leaders in Nigeria have always agitated for the full implementation of Sharia in Nigeria. Nobody has forgotten the hot debates that took place in the Constituent Assembly of 1978 about the place of Sharia in the 1979 Constitution.

Christian members kicked against the full implementation of full Sharia because non-Muslims would fall victim of this law. In the end, a compromise was reached that the Sharia Personal Law be allowed, not the criminal aspects.

The same thing that happened in 1988 Constituent Assembly that produced the 1989 Constitution, which never took off. In fact, in the 1988 Constituent Assembly, General Ibrahim Babangida, then Nigeria’s self-styled military president, had to stop all debates relating to Sharia and other sensitive issues when he saw how inflammable the debates were becoming, and retained the status quo.

The 1999 Constitution drew much from both the 1979 and 1989 Constitutions and retained Sharia Personal law.

Now, Muslims, under President Muhammadu Buhari have surreptitiously attempted to amend the Constitution to insert the full implementation of Sharia without carrying Nigerians along!

Muslim leaders have always argued that Sharia law is meant for Muslims only. But Christians have always refused to buy the argument because in practice, non-Muslims have often been dragged before Shariacourts and have been adjudicated by a legal system repugnant to their faith. Several documented cases abound to prove this.

Besides, Christians have always argued why the government that is supposed to be neutral to all religions should uphold the religious laws of one religion with public funds to the harm of the adherents of other faiths.

These are some of the issues that make some of us to take with a pinch of salt the claims that President Buhari means well for this country. Our job is to bring these issues to the fore to create awareness of what is happening. Whatever happens afterwards is beyond our power. It’s up to you all.

That's part of 'Northern' agenda...but it will surely fail.

Any southern lawmaker that supports such law deserves to be recalled.

If this news is authentic den its a bad news.......but the problem i have with some of this southerners on nairaland is dat dey always blame PMB for everything dat happens in dis country. How have passing a bill in the house of rep become the fault of Buhari? Atleast 40% of the total no of reps are christians including speaker, majority and minority leaders. So any bill dat will favour only one religion in dis country, will be dead on arrival because no sensible xtian rep member will accept dat bill.

Buhari once canvassed for total implementation of sharia across the country so it won't be out of place if he's blamed for such move by some northern lawmakers.

So it's no longer a surprise seeing such audacious moves from the north since he came to power.

If true the question is the house comprises only Muslims. It means is a good law if our Christian brother in the house keep salient.

When we should be trying to separate state from religion
We are trying to override common sense with dumb religious rules
I don't see how this is one country
When some people are always trying to impose their backwardness on others
All those southern lawmakers should be shot and burnt
They are all failures
I hope we learn to recall these senile lawmakers someday

Actually read this piece days ago and was totally fearful and speechless, and on top of that, one dumb nuthead who is only concerned of gee money was saying how it does not concern him, i had to educate the dumb head what he does not know. I mean how can people appear to be liberal but does not know how dumb their own liberal views can get.

Do americans put people on electric chair without a fair hearing? Or do they put people of other nations there for vandetta sake?
You make it sound like there are no criminal elements in Islam who hijack these powerful law to perpetrate heinous crimes agains non-muslims. In the case of those murdered in cold blood over what they term "blasphemy", don't you think the alleged blasphemer here ought to have been given a fair chance to state her case . . . I pity mørøns who think they are serving God by defending faith that was shoved down their fathers throat at gun point and in slaughter houses.
