Nigeria copy and paste new laws from Singapore.



The bewildering speed with which Nigeria came up with an infectious diseases bill to prime Africa’s most populous country for a global pandemic offered the first hint that something was out of order.

Suspicious at the sudden enthusiasm of its notoriously dawdling administrative ranks, reporters in the country discovered that the draft legislation was, almost to the letter, Singapore’s Infectious Diseases Act of 1977. The extent of the pen-pushers’ labours, closer examination revealed, had been to repeatedly delete Singapore, type in Nigeria and add the name and title of a local civil servant as its author.


A crunching of the document through anti-plagiarism software confirmed Nigeria’s new coronavirus-fit legislation to be 98 per cent the same as the Asian original written 43 years ago.

In an attempt to justify legislation through Google, the speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, was composed.  It was " reasonable for paliamentarians to look elsewhere for existing legislation that desks with similar policy goals," he said.
This incident is not the first time the President Buhari administration has been caught out for its "work smart, not hard" approach to governing.
