controversial-it-practitioners-bill-re-emerges

Let’s wait for the bill to be published.

Then we can connect the dots to interrogate both motive and players.

Before the final doc is on the floor and we are reading it line by line our
speculation may isolate potential allies.

Some of the views from last time was to 1. get ahead of politicians

2. and draft a law that is holistic and progressive,

it’s too late for the no. 1 we can work with the good Hon. Otsoro to make
no. 2 happen.

I actually think he was very courteous to tell us about the bill before he
brought it to the house

That’s a very good sign of an open minded and progressive legislator.

And it’s a good point to start.
