QuotableQuote: Seized Tyres

understand that the Federal Government through the Standards
Organization of Nigeria has seized several millions of substandard tyres
worth about 5 billion Naira from some dubious Chinese business men. As
an environmentalist, I am worried about how these tyres will be
disposed. We can’t burn that number of tyres because it will have severe
negative consequences for the environment. Maybe, there may be a
diplomatic angle to whole thing. On a second thought, Honorable
Minister, we in Abia can be of help here. Let them bring those tyres to
Aba and our boys at Port Harcourt Road will use them to produce several
items like fan belts, conveyor belts, etc which can be sold at very good

~Governor Okezie Victor Ikpeazu speaking today at the Town Hall Meeting with Federal Ministers.
