The bill however led to a debate as some lawmakers were of the opinion that there was no need to enact a law on the matter.

The voice vote however went the way of those in support of the bill and the bill was passed.

The sponsor of the bill, Minority Leader of the House, Representative Femi Gbajabiamila said somebody must be made to take responsibility for the frustrations suffered by many Nigerians.
