PORT HARCOURT – The All Progressives Congress (APC), Rivers State Chapter, has condemned, in the strongest terms, the harassment of former Minister of Education, Dr. Obiageli Ezekwesili, by operatives of the State Security Service (SSS) at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, as she tried to travel to London for a scheduled engagement.
Rivers APC in a statement issued in Port Harcourt by the state chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, described the action of the SSS as a throwback to the dark days of military dictatorship.[eap_ad_1]
“For SSS operatives to attempt to confiscate the travel documents of Mrs. Ezekwesili and seek to prevent her from boarding her flight just because she is leading the campaign to get the Goodluck Jonathan administration to do something meaningful to free the abducted Chibok schoolgirls speaks eloquently about government’s lack of seriousness in looking for these innocent girls who were in the first place abducted because government abdicated its responsibility of providing their school with the needed security. This means that Nigeria has returned to the dark days of military dictatorship when the rights of Nigerian citizens were trampled upon with impunity,” Ikanya said.[eap_ad_4]
