The convict said he would bomb the National Assembly.

A sociocultural group, Tiv Youth Organization (TYO) has urged the National Assembly to be guided by the national interest in its debate on the National Water Resources Bill before it.

Its president, Mr. Timothy Hembaor, made the call Monday in Enugu, while briefing journalists at the end of a meeting of leaders of Nigerian indigenous ethnic youth.

Hembaor also called on the political class, especially state governors, to lend their voice to the ongoing debate on the bill, which had been reintroduced in the House of Representatives.

He regretted that the governors who would be most affected by the approval of the bill, were silent except for Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue.

Hembaor said the proposed bill was rejected by the 8th National Assembly after due consideration of the challenges it would provoke in politics.

“We have the feeling that the approval of the National Law on Water Resources will represent a serious challenge for the affected communities.

“We call on the National Assembly to listen to the voice of reason and only legislate on laws that promote the unity of the country,” he said.

Hembaor said the country would be better off if local communities continued to have unhindered control over their water resources and used them to improve their social well-being.

“If Nigerians allow that bill to become law, the future of generations not yet born in this country could be mortgaged.

“Therefore, we call on the National Assembly to suspend action on the bill in the interests of peace and the unity of the country,” he pleaded.
