Senator Oluremi Tinubu, wife of APC Leader Remi Tinubu has tabled a motion before the Senate to compel NAFDAC to regulate cosmetic products in Nigeria.
After she tabled the motion, the Senate then discusses the issue in greater detail with several senators contributing to the discussion very passionately.
Nigerians however reacted to the issue in annoyance wondering how this can even be a priority of the Senate in the middle of a global pandemic, high levels of insecurity and economic crisis. They took to social media to express their anger mocking the Senate for misplacing their priorities
I support the @NGRSenate’s ban on bleaching creams, because it will at least have a positive influence on the governance of Imo state, which is at the moment suffering from bleaching cream induced hallucinations at its highest levels, which led to the unfortunate #OrluAirAttack— Reno Omokri (@renoomokri) February 20, 2021
So bleaching cream is now the priority of the senate….— Kemi Lala Akindoju (@lalaakindoju) February 18, 2021
The Senate was jolted into action from its moribund state over the most critical problem hindering the progress of the Nation. Yes Distinguished, it’s been bleaching Cream all the while! This heated deliberation will no doubt heal the nation & give Elon Musk a run for his Money! https://t.co/ZX7T2oUuCJ— SEGA L'éveilleur®🚨 (@segalink) February 16, 2021
The Nigerian Senate has ended the fight between 7UP and Bigi Foods. They want to regulate bleaching cream. Now maybe they can also settle WizKid vs Davido, Farmers vs Herdsmen and EFCC vs Yahoo Boys🙄 Misplaced priorities ‼️#SpeakUpDrKemi📣 pic.twitter.com/839MmAXkBv— Journalist/Pharmacist Dr Kemi Olunloyo (@KemiOlunloyo) February 19, 2021

These people think law making is a joke!!! Who cares about bleaching cream?
After her people voted her to represent them, upon all the life's threatening challenges engulfing this country, the only bill Mma could choose to sponsor and talk about is to the senate to regulate bleaching cream.— Unwanaassam (@Unwanaassam1) February 17, 2021
Is the Nigerian Senate not wonderful? pic.twitter.com/DxLUUXYgoZ
Just imagine a whole Senate deliberating about bleaching creams and cosmetics amidst the humongous challenges we are facing as a Nation. This very embarrassing and to say I'm disappointed is an understatement.— Adegoke Victor (@AdegokeVictor9) February 17, 2021
