Veteran Nollywood actor, Richard Mode-Damijo has called on the Nigerian Customs service through his Instagram page to release seized food items in their custody so that Nigerians can feed on them during this challenging period.
According to the 58 year old, the Federal Government should order the release of seized food items by Nigerian custom so that it will help to feed Nigerians in this critical period.
Many states in Nigeria have declared curfews or partial lockdowns leaving residents with little or no food to live on. The actor urged the agency to provide palliatives by distributing food items which the usually destroy.
In his words;
“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.
