British Newspaper Mocks Gbajabiamila’s ‘Copy And Paste’ Bill

One of the United Kingdom’s biggest national newspapers with a combined print and digital distribution of over 600,000 daily, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari and Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila of “copy and paste”.

The Times UK described the Buhari-led administration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as one that prefers to “work smart, not hard”.

In its May 18 publication, the British newspaper made reference to the recent Infectious Diseases Bill sponsored by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Gbajabiamila, and President Buhari’s 2015 inauguration address.
Referring to Gbajabiamila’s controversial bill, the publication said: “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 percent the same as the Asian original written 43 years ago.
“In an attempt to justify legislation via Google, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, was unabashed. It was “reasonable for parliamentarians to look elsewhere for existing legislation that deals with similar policy goals”, he said.”

The British national daily added that, “The episode is not the first time that President Buhari’s administration has been caught out for its “work smart, not hard” approach to governing.
“The president’s inauguration address in May 2015 stirred millions with his “I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody” line until cynics, suspecting that it was too rousing to be original work, rushed to check: Charles de Gaulle had got there first, in 1958.”
Recall that Senator Muhammed Musa (Niger East Senatorial District), also of the ruling APC, was accused of plagiarising the controversial “Protection from Internet falsehood and manipulations bill 2019” he sponsored in the present 9th Senate.
Musa was said to have plagiarised an act that was signed into law by the Government of Singapore in 2019.
