Veteran Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe Damijo, popularly known as RMD, has urged the government to ask the Customs to share food items they seized before the lock down.
Some states in Nigeria are currently on lockdown, due to the recent coronavirus outbreak, as the government tries to curb the spread of the virus in the country.
Earlier today, House of Representatives member, Honorable Gudaji Kazaure asked President Buhari to order the Nigeria Customs Service to release all the bags of rice seized to Nigerians.
Now, veteran actor, Richard Mofe Damijo, has also shared the same view, as he stated that this seems to be the best time for the customs to share the seized food items.
See what he wrote below;
“Sitting here wondering if this wont be a good time for government to ask Customs about all the plenty seized rice, tomato, vegetable oil and all the other food items they have in their possession and give out to our people in need.
Whilst thanking them for reduced fuel prices at this time (inject smiley face)and all the other efforts so far, food is a major part of this lock down.
I know sometimes the agencies of govt dont work as a team but please this is the time for customs to step and tell us how much relief they can bring to nigerians.”
