The case with suit No: FHC/ABJ/CS/463/2020 was filed by the lawmaker in pursuant of his fundamental human rights to the dignity of his person, personal liberty, right to private and family life, right to freedom of movement and to own immovable property in Nigeria.
While expressing his opinion about the proposed bill, Melaye noted that the bill contravenes sections of the Nigerian constitution and further described it as “Not a holy bill, Satanic, and can as well be christened the bill Gates bill”.
According to him, the bill contravenes section 34, right to liberty of human persons, S35 that talks about human dignity and chapter four which addresses fundamental human rights.
Melaye further argued that should this bill pull through, then Nigerians are moving to police controlled state.
He also noted S13 of Nigeria constitution which makes provisions against any law not in compliance with or is in conflict with the constitution of Nigeria, to the extent of its inconsistency, to be pronounced null and void.
