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
Rivers APC in a statement issued in Port Harcourt by the State Chairman, Dr.
Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, described the action of the SSS as shameful, unwarranted
and a throwback to the dark days of military dictatorship.
“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.
