The former Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority, Hadiza Bala, has come under huge attack and criticism for her statement lamenting on the ongoing insecurity issues in the Country.

Hadiza had spoken in the context of the commemoration of the eight years after the abduction of the Chibok girls in Borno State by Boko Haram terrorists, and she had reacted through her verified Twitter handle, condemning the insecurity situation and therefore, demanded swift actions from the government be taken to secure the release of the girls.

According to her: “It is eight years today since 276 girls were abducted in Chibok Secondary School, 109 still remain in captivity. Many more girls, boys and indeed citizens of all ages have also been abducted from schools, communities and while enroute journeys,” she wrote.

It is a known truth that Hadiza Usman, was a co-coordinator of the #BringBackOurGirls movement, which came to life on the heels of the Chibok abductions had been very active in the movement’s activities until she was appointed the managing director of the NPA and went very silent on the issues around activism, or matters critical of the government.

She however had a clash with the Minister of Transportation and supervisor for the Nigerian Ports Authority, NPA, Rotimi Amaechi and was first suspended and later sacked, then, since her sack, her comments has however sparked criticisms, with some Nigerians labeling her a ‘‘SHAMELESS HYPOCRITE” and fresh attention seeker for not speaking out while she was in office at NPA.

You would recall, that Hadiza Bala was suspended as MD of the NPA in May 2021 by President Mohammadu Buhari over her failure to remit N165 billion operating surplus to the coffers of the Federal government and even though she was later cleared of the allegations, but she did not get reinstate her to office.
