Si nce the announcement of boader closure waiver in favour of Dangote Cement, many Nigerians have frowned at such preferencial treatment a s many Nigerian bussinesses are negatively affected by same Government measure.

A prominent human rights activist and Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has strongly criticised such government consideration of Aliko Dangote over the exemption of his Cement business from the border closure.

He criticized the fact that 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?”
