Aremu Afolayan slams the government over the treatment melted upon him and other Nigerians at the airport.
Aremu Afolayan doesn't really have nice things to say about the shabby treatment he received at the airport and has dragged the government over its inadequacies.
The actor took to his Instagram page on Sunday, November 11, 2018, where he shared a video blasting the government and the airport authorities. He went on to caption the video with his experience at the airport and the poor treatment he witnessed being melted on a young Nigerian.
“So frustrated today by the situation of this country, the people working at different parastatals actually think they are some kind of god. Ethiopian airline staffs are so inefficient. They refused to carry a passenger for no reason. The girl in question is not a citizen of Nigeria, she went with her France passport and other documents issued by the France consulate , all they needed to do was to verify the passport but no the manager said he is not comfortable with the passport so she can’t fly with them, he actually dropped the passport and took to his heels .
“Imagine the immigration saying she should get a Nigerian visa, for what?I don’t know. How will you ask her to get a Nigerian visa to go to France, I don’t understand this and I need some explanation, after that, they said she should get a Nigerian passport, for what please??? this is wrong and I am so angry at that. The same manager has agreed to carry the girl with additional cost and all. Which way Nigeria, why are treated like uneducated animals and why are these people acting like important fools, all you need to do is do your job and do it right. When will this stop?
“The security at the departure are not helping matters, how can you ask me to pay to let my family see me off to the check-in point, this is wrong very wrong. Even the immigration officers wants to collect money for anything they do ….why why-why . And I know the mayor @akinwunmiambode of this and every other state can find a lasting solution to this , the president @muhammadubuhari himself can override things to set them right but I bet they don’t even know people are traveling out of the country, check the airport all you see are Nigerians running away from the country. I have never seen an EMIRATI or an AMERICAN that will run away from their country. Until you have no one to governor be a president over before you know. LONG LIVE SCARED NIGERIANS,” he concluded.
This is not the first time we will be seeing a celebrity actually drag the government over issues in the country. Recall earlier in the year, rapper, Eedris Abdulkarem took shots at the Inspector General of Police over the arrest of a journalist.
Eedris Abdulkareem slams Inspector General of Police over detained journalist
Eedris Abdulkareem has slammed the Inspector General of Police, Idris Ibrahim over the continuous detaining of journalist, Samuel Ogundipe. The veteran rapper took to his Instagram page on Friday, August 17, 2018, where he took slammed the Inspector General of Police for detaining the journalist. According to him, the IGP will have countless sleepless nights over the arrest of Segun Ogundipe.
"A Journalist would rather be tortured, jailed or in the extreme, killed rather than disclose his source. To the Journalist, it is sacrosanct, it is cardinal, it is the peak of his ethical responsibility to never disclose his source. Many have gone to jail and it is considered a badge of honour in the profession. Mr IGP, the young man, Samuel Ogundipe will give you hundreds of sleepless nights and super high blood pressure if you are waiting for him to expose his source.
"He would rather go to jail and when out, will be held in honour, promoted, sponsored by international organisations, remembered and used as reference by students of journalism and journalists world over. Mr IGP sir, what will you be remembered for beyond your transmission gaffe, will you even still be in the police force after this dispensation? What will you be remembered for? Putting a Journalist in jail? Disobeying the president? Oppression and suppression of truth? It sure doesn't end here, Sir. Conscience is an open wound, Sir," he wrote.
Eedris Abdulkareem is a known vocal rapper who is never shy to call out both celebrities and the people at the corridors of power.
