Senate "If anyone wants to indulge in prostitution ... should be registered and issued a license".


Due to concerns of trafficking, Deputy
Senate President Ike
Ekweremadu asked the Senate to
consider the possibility of legalising and
regulating prostitution in the country
since it has become impossible to stop
prostitution entirely. He said

“we need to regulate prostitution in
this country so that if anyone
wants to indulge in prostitution, the
person should be registered and
issued with a license. If we say we
want to stop it, it would be difficult.
It is done in other countries; let us
regulate it by issuing license"

Senate President David Mark added

“the FCT administration has been
trying to stop but they are facing
stiff resistance because the
prostitutes have their association
and even their own legal adviser. It
is a reasonably organised bad
profession.”

Also, several senators advocated for
amendment to the National Agency for
Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons
(NAPTIP) Act to provide for capital
punishment for those involved in
human trafficking.

What do you think?? Isn't legalising it a
way of saying we're supporting their
act though it clashes with our religious
beliefs?
