Strong opposition to the ruling party, Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has appealed to President Buhari’s government to relax the ban on the importation of used cars through land borders for at least, a month so that those who had imported cars would clear them in the period of grace.
Fayose who made the plea in an interview with Vanguard on Thursday, December 5, urged leaders of government to display human minds towards those they govern.
He said: “Now that we are in the era of banning these used cars. But we must be leaders of government that have human minds. We want to appeal to the Federal government to allow people who have a lot of vehicles at the border to clear these vehicles, extend it for them for about a month maximum.
“Because, most of them, the boat didn’t arrive on time for them to clear those vehicles. It is in the overall interest of fairness and all-inclusive governance to please allow these people to clear their vehicles because.”
The governor said Nigerians would go into so much suffering and a lot of business would equally face more recession if the importers are allowed to lose much.
Fayose also has said all his predictions that President Muhammadu Buhari will not perform in government have all come to pass.
He said he has always known that President Buhari will not perform in government, adding that the change mantra which Buhari promised Nigerians is not working.
