However, Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Mrs Zainab Ahmed, who disclosed this in Abuja at the weekly FEC meeting also said restriction on the importation of some commodities, like rice and other products, would continue to be enforced.
The borders opened for now include Seme Border in the Southwest, Ilela Border in the Northwest and the two others borders are Maigatari and Mfun.
