This call followed the joint motion moved by the Chairman, House Committee on Education, Hon. Lanre Ogunyemi, and seconded by the Chairman, House Committee on Finance, Hon. Yinka Ogundimu, .

The lawmakers decried the break down of law and order, good behaviour and sanity in the society.

Ogunyemi said that the programme would help build the culture of cleanliness, humility, dutifulness, honesty among others in the country.

“There is no more sanity in the society, people don’t see anything bad in evil and indiscipline again. Abnormal things have become normal in our society,” he said.

The lawmaker highlighted some of the undisciplined acts to include, defecation in open space, street fighting, disobedience to traffic lights, littering roads, blocking of drainages with waste, failure to use pedestrians bridges, beating of security operatives among others.

Ogunyemi called on the Federal Government to support the security agencies to ensure that Nigerians behave responsibly in the society.

Also speaking, Ogundimu said, “Indiscipline has taken over the society, what were considered abnormal before are now regarded as normal. We are now undisciplined.”

Another lawmaker, the Chairman, House Committee on Works and Infrastructure, Hon. Abiodun Tobun, said, ” there is no more fear in the heart of our people and this makes everyone to be indiscipline.”

Tobun called on all the security operatives to lead the discipline campaign and be alive to their responsibilities.

In his submission, the Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa described the loss of orderliness as ‘shameful’ and called on Buhari to resuscitate the programme.
