The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, has revealed that Nigeria’s land borders may be reopened soon.
She said this while speaking to State House correspondents on Wednesday, adding that the presidential committee set up on the matter has completed its job and has recommended the borders to be reopened.
She disclosed that the committee would soon submit its report to President Muhammadu Buhari, following which a formal pronouncement would be made on the matter.
However, Ahmed did not reveal when the report will be submitted and when the land borders will be reopened.
Nigeria’s land borders have been closed since August 2019, in a bid to curtail illegal importation of drugs, small arms and agricultural products into the country from neighbouring West African nations.
