There are important bills to pass on security, child marriage – Women’s right activist, Laila St. Matthew-Daniel reacts as Reps move to outlaw cross-dressing

Women’s rights activist, Laila St. Matthew-Daniel has reacted to the proposed bill to outlaw cross-dressing in Nigeria.

The House of Representatives received a bill seeking to prohibit cross-dressing in the country.

The bill, sponsored by a member, Muda Lawal Umar, passed first reading on Tuesday, April 5.

If passed into law, cross-dressing will become an offence in the country with the exemption of those using it for entertainment. Offenders will be liable to be jailed for six months.

“So many important bills to pass on areas of security, reduced allowances, child marriage, women’s equity etc and a ‘cross dressing’ bill is more important? Who the heck are these lawmakers.” the right activist wrote.
