He pointed out that to substitute old ideas with new ones require time in order to avoid any adverse effect on the populace.

He said the rehabilitation should not only be limited to provision of food and shelter but also include caring for the needs of their dependents.
On his own part, a member representing Zonkwa Constituency, Hon. Kantiok Irimiya, pointed out that House Bills are for the betterment of the society which goes beyond politics and votes.
He said if the legislation would take into cognisance the adverse effect on the public, the house may not be able carry out its constitutional duties which may also endanger the society.
Hon Bello Sani Gimi, a member representing Makarfi constituency in the House, applauded the Bill saying it is timely and for the benefit of all.
