There are inducations that the country’s land borders could be opened any time from now.
The country’s Borders were shut since August 2019 to forestall illegal smuggling of rice, curtail illegal importation of drugs, small arms and other illegal agricultural products into country from neighbouring West African nations.
Indication however emerged that Federal Government would reopened soon.
The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, stated this in a chat with State House correspondents on Wednesday.
Ahmed said the presidential committee set up on the issue has recommended reopening of the borders.
She said the committee would soon submit its report to President Muhammadu Buhari after which a formal pronouncement would be made on the matter.
