Just In: Buhari Orders Immediate Reopening Of Four Land Borders
Posted on December 16, 2020 || By: Global News
President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the immediate reopening of four land borders, reports The Gazelle News.com.
The other land borders are to be opened on 31 December,
In August 2019, Nigeria partially closed its land borders, and since October 2019, it has halted all trade via land borders. This was triggered by Nigerian authorities’ frustration with the smuggling in of rice and illicit exports of locally subsidized petrol to neighboring countries.
