Former Minister of Education under the administration of Olusegun Obasaanjo, Oby Ezekwesili has condemned the raiding of an hotel in Abuja by the men of Nigerian Custom Service, (NCS).
Ezekwesili said this in a series of tweets on her verified and official twitter.
The Nigerian Customs Service had on Wednesday raided the Frasier hotel Abuja impounding 11 vehicles which were mainly Toyota, Lexus and Mercedes Benz.
The vehicles were also said not to have customs duty documents.
Some of the impounded vehicle according to PUNCHNG included a black Toyota Prado SUV with number RSH 500R; a Benz SUV marked GWA 665 RZ; a Lexus SUV marked EKY 650FA; a Benz E Class with number ABC 592TM and a Toyota Prado marked ABJ 704CH.
The former minister in condemning the NCS action, said, not even Socialist Soviet Union nor then Communist China went this far in the range of horrific policies that now dots the economic landscape of our country, Nigeria.
“On a personal level, I frankly have no business advocating against bad governance in this country as if it affects me most.”
“So I also could have taken the easier path of unlooking, like most of my peers do in Nigeria. I gladly made this Choice and everything that comes with it.”
“So when some say, “Na only you the condition of the country dey pain? Why can’t you just leave these matters alone and ignore” , I remind them that Being Silent is a Choice & so is Speaking Up. We all must individually make a Choice. Choose yours in peace.”
“Daily I see extremely poor families that can barely feed, have health care and educate their children. They are left praying and hoping that someday, the country will turnaround. No level of personal comfort one has can survive the desolation of too many others. I thus Speak.”
“A government took an Economy that was already on the precipice and crashed it so severely and yet refuses to own the consequences of the disaster it created. Instead this government keeps fumbling from one weird Policy to another.
It is Not Sustainable. No. It is not.”
“Not even Socialist Soviet Union nor then Communist China went this far in the range of horrific policies that now dots the economic landscape of our country, Nigeria.”
“Nigeria Customs invading a hotel? This level of ceaseless flow of Bad Policies is Not Sustainable. No.”
