Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has launched an attack on Popular Businessman, Aliko Dangote over the exemption his Cement business from the Border closure.
The Federal Government gave Dangote approval to export Cement to West Africa through Nigeria’s land borders, which have been closed for over a year. The cement manufacturer is the only company given such approval to export across the borders.
In a series of Tweets on Tuesday, FFK wrote;
“During the Covid-19 lockdown Dangote trucks were allowed to drive through Ogun state but everyone else was stopped.”
“Today Dangote trucks are allowed to go through our land borders but everyone else is stopped. Was Nigeria created for Dangote or was Dangote created for Nigeria?”
Dangote has been subject to heavy criticism ever since the report of the exemption was made public by Bloomberg.
