Senator representing Kogi west, Smart Adeyemi is set to sponsor bills for the enactment of the Mosaic law as a measure to curb corruption in the country.
He reveled this at a recent event in Lokoja, Kogi state, on Saturday, Oct. 3,2020.Adeyemi said public officers will not steal if their hands are cut off. The senator who said he wants a better Nigeria for his children, said it was time penalties were stiffened to deter people from stealing.
“What am I talking about? Let us confront corruption. Very soon I’m coming back to the chamber to bring bills on ICPC and EFCC. I want us to introduce Mosaic law, what you call Sharia law. By the time you cut the hands of 10, 20 people in this country, nobody will want to steal again.
By the time you say two, three people should face serious punishment; if you say that is too harsh let us have mechanised agriculture of about 200, 250 acres, once you are involved in corruption, you will spend your life farming for us.”He said.
