House Passes Bill On Small Arms Commission


ABUJA, March 07, (THEWILL) – The House of Representatives,Thursday, passed for second reading a bill for the establishment of a National Commission Against the Proliferation of Small Arms and Light Weapons in the country.

The commission, when set up, would coordinate and implement activities to combat the problem of the proliferation of small arms and light weapons in Nigeria in line with the Economic Community of West African (ECOWAS) convention on small arms and light weapons.

Leading debate, the sponsor of the bill, Hon. Nnenna Elendu-Ukeje (PDP, Abia), said the intention of the proposed law is to address the security challenges affecting the country at the moment.

She said Nigeria is the only ECOWAS member country without the commission, even though it is a signatory to the ECOWAS convention on small arms and light weapons, which recommended its establishment in order to track down the spread of illegal weapons among its citizens.

Elendu-Ukeje disclosed that research has shown that out of the 857 million small arms and weapons in the world, 500 million are illegal with 100 million found in sub Saharan Africa adding that 7.5 percent are in Nigeria.

The lawmaker argued that the problem of militancy in the Niger Delta, Boko Haram in the north and sundry violence across the country was due to the uncontrolled number of weapons in private hands.

She noted that Nigeria being the most populous country in West Africa should have been the first to domesticate the ECOWAS convention on the control of small and light weapons.

Supporting the bill, deputy House Leader, Hon. Leo Ogor (PDP, Delta), submitted that since Nigeria is signatory to the ECOWAS convention, the bill be allowed to go through public hearing so that areas that could be domesticated be taken.

Opposing the motion, Hon. Robinson Uwak (PDP, Akwa Ibom) argued that it was contrary to the House Legislative Agenda, which advocates cut in government expenditure, therefore establishing a commission to control small arms was tantamount to proliferation of government agencies.

He argued that the military and other security agencies have been doing well in combating the proliferation of arms and light weapons in the country and wondered why a different commission should be created to take over their responsibilities.

But when the issue was put to question by the deputy speaker, Hon. Emeka Ihedioha who presided over the session, it was an overwhelming approval of the bill.

It was therefore referred to the House committee on national security for further legislative actions.

As a matter of fact, no amount of effort made in battling insecurities that is too much. "A tree cannot make a forest." Approving Natforce will do no harm to the country but rather help her healed her long time wounds caused by insecurities as a result of inadequate strength to fight insecurities.

Mr President, happy new month.I am one among those in the East who strongly stood by you,against all odds before your election by supporting you in all the social media platforms that I have. I know what I passed through then as some people were passing invective words on me but I never minded. I stood by my words and still stands by my words that "CHANGE" has come to stay. fortunately, in your regime I applied for natforce job and everything moves smoothly as I've been shortlisted for training.I also went back to my social media platforms to declare that your regime has brought change and changed my story. Please, My God-sent, do not let my detractors laugh at me by asking questions, Please Mr President, kindly endorse your signature on Natforce, let's spring into action. We are so anxious to work, to be called proudly Nigerians by serving our Nation. Mr President, all you can do for me by appreciating my strong faith in you is by wiping away my tears, by signing Natforce into law.Sir, it will not only add credit to your regime,it will cause millions of Nigerian youths who are written off to be employed. God bless Me President, God bless Natforce, God bless Nigeria !!!

Mr. President, I beg u in d name of God Almighty to kindly use ur position in the 8th Senate to kindly approve and pass the natforce bill into law as you Av just did to the peace Corps. This will further reduce the rate of unemployment among the youths in this country. For the sake of the youth and future of Nigeria, kindly do something about natforce. People have spent a lot of money and has been trained but we need the job pls!
hassan b. Mohammed borno state | 12/9/2016 11:05:00 AM
respected elders ladies and the gentleman good morning every body. l therefore want to remind u or inform u all, note: I am just speak to the public both Muslims and the Christans those who were indigenous part of the country as a citizens of Nigeria since we are waiting for approval of mr president to sign natforce bill in to law but up to now were still not yet sign, so as a advice there are many things going in Nigeria whereas what we support to do just take a pray and consider that only god will help us to command buhari to sign the natforce bill in to law. my reason is that, since administration of former president Dr ebele Jonathan we are hoping that Jonathan will sign the natforce bill but he refused to do. so respected elders ladies and the gentlemen to start praying for god if u like to work in natforce. tanx.

The work of Natforce is not a duplicate work of any force at all. police are dealing with cases of crime like stealing,fighting, monitoring of election and same civil defence but that of Natforce is to control illicit trade of small arms and light light weapons in both towns villages. yes, Nigeria is in reccision, we know but if environs are not saved,how can investors will come into the country.

Peace Corps of Nigeria Bill was passed left for the President to assent to it. Now, the VIGILANTAE GROUP OF NIGERIA (VGN) Bill has just been passed and now awaiting Presidential assent. The Big Question now is, (1) What is the problem with the Natforce Bill (2) why is no one in the National Assembly, Executive and or human activist groups talking about it. I weep for our youths (myself inclusive) roaming the streets of Nigeria states with good academic qualifications yet; no job, no one to speak on our behalf, not even those we voted to power. I therefore, with respect call on the Senate Committee on National Security, the National Security Adviser (NSA), the Minister of Interior and The President of The Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency Mr. Muhamadu Buharia and the Vice President, His Excellency Prof. Yemi Osibanyo, the Senate President Distinquish Senator Bokula Saraki, the Speaker House of Representative Rt. Hon. Dogora to please look into the Bill of NATFORCE for Consideration. The Bill if assented to, will help reduce uneployment among the Nigeria youth, the Men of the Natforce will help the presidential ongoing anti-corruption crusade in collaboration with other security agencies fight against illegal importation of Small Arms and Light Weapons into the Country. Thank you.
Charles Paulinus | 10/21/2017 12:14:00 PM
