Well at least in Anambra state.The Anambra house of assembly has just passed a bill, to reduce burial expenses in the state.
As morbid as it sounds a lot of people may see this as a bit of a relief. Charles Ezeani, member representing Aniocha 11 constituency and sponsor of the bill, said the legislation provides that burial ceremonies will be held in one day.
There is a provision in the bill that no individual will be able to leave a corpse in any mortuary in the state beyond two months.
He complained in a statement that burial expenses have been on the rise in the state.
“All of us should strive to do good and be prepared for death as it comes like a thief.There is no repentance in the grave so everybody should work had to achieve heaven. We spend a lot in burial, we should bury the dead but not to the extent of spending that much”.
The real question is will there be a rise in moving to Anambra for burial retreats?
