UPDATE ON SEIZED MEDICAL EQUIPMENT BY NIGERIAN CUSTOMS


UPDATE ON SEIZED MEDICAL EQUIPMENT BY NIGERIAN CUSTOMS

RE: Corruption and the pain of being a Nigerian physician. Written by Ahidjo Abdulkadiri Kawu

To all my colleagues, thanks a million. There is a new twist to this saga.

1. The National Assembly has asked that I should come wit the document related to this case on Monday.

2. The ICPC has contacted me that the case would be solved soon.

3. The office of the Comptroller General Custom(CGC) has called me to say that the goods has been released with immediate effect and the officer has been ordered to report to Abuja and would be punish because they have read the message on the internet and are scared the dimension it has taken.

4. The warehouse said the demurrage is about 3million already

5. When we go to the NA, the Custom would claim that they have released the goods
what do I want?

1. That all doctors who have had similar experiences with the custom officials should come out to report their cases.

2. Letter of Apology from the CGC.

3. The goods should be brought to Abuja and delivered at my office.

4. Letter to the donor company clearing my name that I have not diverted the goods for private use.

5. Public apology to Nigerians for their insensitivity and directly responsible for the death of Nigerians.

I pledge to work for the plights of Nigerian with spine related problems and this I would do with all of my strength. Thanks once again.
