A member of the Nigerian Senate, representing Niger South, Bima Enagi, has introduced a bill that seeks to ban the importation of generators in Nigeria, Bittertruth Media reports.

The bill, titled “a bill for an Act to prohibit/ban the importation of generating sets to curb the menace of environmental (air) pollution and to facilitate the development of the power sector,” was one of the six bills read for the first time on Wednesday.

The bill prescribes, at least, ten years imprisonment for any person who knowingly sells generator sets.

It is unclear if the bill will scale legislative scrutiny and become a law.
