Adeleke Otunuga, a prominent Nigerian, based in the United States of America, laments the sorry state of toilets at the Embassy of Nigeria, Washington DC, and the lackadaisical attitude of staff there

THESE are not the best times for the Nigerian Embassy in Washington DC. The prestigious mission house of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to the United States currently has a messed up toilet that requires urgent attention.
The messed up toilet was captured on camera by a prominent Nigerian, Adeleke Otunuga who was at the embassy to process passports for his children.
“I wondered…why would a public toilet at an embassy be out of order. The time it takes to write that notice is all it takes to call a plumber,” said Dr. Otunuga.
Sources say the toilet have been out of order for a while.
Otunuga further stated that “Even the notice itself speaks much, and is a reflection, of warped mindset of Naija leaders- all torn up and mangled! I hope this change will sweep out perennial misleaders out of decision making positions for good.”
The toilet appeared not anchored very good, there is a horrible pee smell, and the smell is very strong. The WC (Water closet) also appears to have some poop in it…it stinks real bad!
The Nigeian embassy is not new to scandals, in June 2012, the United States of America government was said to have frozen some of the accounts of the Nigerian embassy in Washington, DC. Following an allegation of money laundering. Bank of America, M&T Bank and Wells Fargo allegedly got directive from the US government to close the accounts of the Nigerian embassy in Washington and its consulate in New York on suspicion of money laundering after traffic on the various accounts raised a red flag.
“The depth of disorganization here is endless. They open at 9am, but I arrived here before 8am with the hope I will be the first to be processed, and I can return the kids to school in good time. Well, no sign-in sheets. By 10am, they showed up, took us to a different room, and produced a sign-in sheet. I told them if that had been done at the initial waiting room, the last person to arrive won’t be the first attended to. I insisted on being first. I finally got it my way. The good thing is, everyone agreed the embassy was wrong,” Adeleke stressed.
