BREAKING: Nigerian Govt gives update on reopening of land borders
The Federal Government has declared the land borders would be reopened soon.
The borders were closed since August 2019 to curtail illegal importation of drugs, small arms and agricultural products into country from neighbouring West African nations.
The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, gave this indication during an interview with State House correspondents on Wednesday.
Ahmed said the presidential committee set up on the matter has completed its job and has recommended the reopening of the borders.
She said the committee would soon submit its report to the President Muhammadu Buhari, following which a formal pronouncement would be made on the matter.
The minister did not, however, disclose when the report will be submitted and how soon the land borders will be reopened.
