Anambra Legislates on Burials.

The Situation
The Anambra State House of Assembly on Wednesday, passed a bill titled “Law to Control Burial/Funeral Ceremonies Activities in the State. This bill contains the following prohibitions.
1. Prohibition against deposit of 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.
2. Prohibition against destruction of property, gunshots, praise-singing, blocking of roads and streets during burial ceremonies in the state.
3. 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.”
This bill is awaiting approval by the Governor before it becomes law.

The Question
After reading this bill, I started wondering, how important is this bill considering the situation of the country? Consider the problem of insecurity and economic instability. By passing this bill, you take away business from the funeral homes, the entertainers, event planners, etc. This discourages commerce.


What right does the government have to tell you when or for how long you can bury your dead? The government does not give an individual the financial means to bury its dead yet it fills justified in making laws on burial rights. The government, according to S16(2) is supposed to promote economic development, ensure citizens have stable shelter, security, adequate food and receive minimum wage. Ensure an adequate pension and healthcare for the aged and eradicate unemployment. I don’t know about you, but I think the Anambra State Legislators should first ensure that they adequately fulfil their mandate before they overstep their jurisdiction.


Lastly do the legislatures realise that by making a law that states 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” they have indirectly made it a law that people have the right to subject the relations of the deceased to a week’s mourning period.
