Senator Dino Melaye to Sponsor Anti-Tribal Mark Bill

Senator Dino Melaye is poised to bring an end to tribal marks on children as he sets to sponsor a bill in the House of Assembly towards this regards.
The Senator representing Kogi West, is driven by the now viral picture of a toddler with fresh tribal marks which surfaced on social media over the weekend.

Melaye posted on his Twitter handle that he will be sponsoring a bill to stop tribal marks, adding that National Identity Card is enough to identify where an individual is from

“This barbaric act must stop. National Identity card is enough to identify where individuals come from. Support my bill to stop this,” he wrote.


While many Nigerians have rallied in support of the Senator, Nollywood star, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde is among the first celebrity to lend her voice to this cause.
