The Federal Government has just seized substandard tyres worth N5 billion from some Chinese importers. The Lagos State Government has just seized 4000 motorcycles belonging to notorious Okada riders.
Instead of burning the tyres and burying the crushed motorcycles (yes, they should be crushed to prevent some wicked soul from smuggling them out to use them to maim or kill people), these goods should be sent to the industrial cities of Aba and Nnewi, where they would be recycled and used to produce goods that would be sold cheaper to Nigerians.
I agree with the Governor of Abia State on this. Let us not waste, especially in these lean times. Let us save some dollars we would have used to import rubber and metals. We need as much forex as we can save.
