President Buhari orders reopening of 4 land borders

President Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the immediate reopening of four land borders.

The Presidency made this known in a tweet on Wednesday.

Federal Government had in August 2019 closed its land borders to curtail illegal importation of drugs, small arms and agricultural products into country from neighboring West African nations.

The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, had last month hinted on the reopening of the nation’s borders.

Ahmed had said the presidential committee set up on the matter had completed its job and had recommended the reopening of the borders.

The reopening of Seme, Illela, Maigatari, and Mfun borders was disclosed on Wednesday after a Federal Executive Council meeting.
