Nigerian Land Boarders to Reopen Soon Says President

After much debate, President Muhammadu Buhari has announced that the Nigerian Government are considering re-opening the land boarders ‘as soon as possible’.

The land boarders have been closed since August 2019 to decrease the level of illegal food and agricultural products being smuggled into Nigeria from neighbouring countries.

President Muhammadu Buhari announced the intention via social media on Tuesday, tweeting ‘In my meeting with State Governors today I explained that the closure of Nigeria’s land borders was partly an attempt to control the smuggling in of weapons & drugs. Now that the message has sunk in with our neighbours, we’re looking into reopening the borders as soon as possible.”

Zainab Ahmed, The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, revealed last month that issue had been indicated and will be brought before the President to make a final decision.
