The Nigerian Senate on Wednesday, March 11, 2020, introduced a bill to ban the use of generators in Nigeria.
The bill which was sponsored by Senator Bima Muhammadu Emagi (APC Niger South), passed its first reading on the floor of the red chamber.
If eventually signed into law, the bill dubbed ‘Generating Set (Prohibition/Ban) Bill’, will prohibit the usage of generating sets in the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

This of course, would generate a whole lot of reactions from Nigerians, not only in the country, but across the world.
