Veteran Nollywood actor, Richard Mode-Damijo, popularly known as RMD has urged Nigerian customs to give out seized food items to the poor.
According to the 58 year old, the Federal Government should order the release of seized food items by Nigerian customs so that it will help feed Nigerians in this critical period.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Nigerians have been urged to stay at home to prevent the further spread of the deadly virus.
However, the quarantine has been a huge issue for many people especially poor homes that could not afford to stock up before the lockdown.
He said: “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.
