Anambra House of Assembly Bans Expensive Burial in the State, to Set up Enforcement Committee

Anambra House of Assembly Bans Expensive Burial in
the State, to Set up Enforcement Committee.
DO YOU SUPPORT THIS BILL????
_______________________________________
The Anambra State House of Assembly on Wednesday
outlawed expensive funerals in the state.
Passing the bill entitled a Law To Control Burial/Funeral
Ceremonial Activities in the State, the House said it had
become an offence to hold a funeral for more than a day
in the state.

Before this development, communities had held funerals
on an average of three days.
But the bill sponsored by the member representing
Anaocha II constituency, Charles Ezeani stated that
“Burial/funeral control bill is aimed at cutting down the
cost of burial activities in the state”.
The bill provided that in the event of death, “No person
shall deposit any corpse in the mortuary or any place
beyond two months from the date of the death, while
burial ceremonies in the state shall be for one day.”
The law prohibited destruction of property, gunshots,
praise-singing, blocking of roads and streets during
burial ceremonies in the state.
The bill also provided that, “No person shall subject any
relation of the deceased person to a mourning period of
more than one week from the date of the burial
ceremony”.
It further stipulates that during burial and funeral
ceremonial activities, the family of the deceased “shall
provide food for their kindred, relatives and other
sympathizers at their own discretion.
Speaking to newsmen, Ezeani said a monitoring and
implementation committee that would enforce the law
would be put in place when the governor assents it.
