Breaking: Land borders for reopening soon – FG

The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, on Wednesday stated that 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.

While speaking with State House correspondents in Abuja, 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.
