The Lagos State House of Assembly has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to resuscitate War Against Indiscipline (WAI) to restore orderliness, sanity and discipline in the country.
This came following a joint motion moved by the Chairman, House Committee on Education, Lanre Ogunyemi, and seconded by the Chairman, House Committee on Finance, Yinka Ogundimu.
“There is no more sanity in the society, people don’t see anything bad in evil and indiscipline again. Abnormal things have become normal in our society,” Ogunyemi said.
Highlighting some of the indisciplined acts, he said, defecation in open space, street fighting, disobedience to traffic lights, littering roads, blocking of drainages with waste, failure to use pedestrians bridges, beating of security operatives among others.
“Indiscipline has taken over the society, what were considered abnormal before are now regarded as normal. We are now undisciplined,” Ogunyemi said.
Also speaking, Ogundimu said, “Indiscipline has taken over the society, what were considered abnormal before are now regarded as normal. We are now undisciplined.”
In his submission, the Speaker of the House, Mudashiru Obasa described the loss of orderliness as ‘shameful’ and called on Buhari to resuscitate the programme.
