Nigerian border communities beg Buhari to open the borders



Estimated Reading Time: <1

Border communities in Ogun State have begged President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately open the land borders to alleviate the suffering of Nigeria masses.

Addressing newsmen alongside eight Monarchs from different border communities, Emeritus Professor of History, Anthony Asiwaju argued that it was regrettable that the government was over blowing gains allegedly accruing from the closure while ignoring the dire plights of the entire Nigerian border communities.

According to him, curbing smuggling goes beyond border closure as it requires well thought out policy and not “such simplistic approach”.

He hinted on various hardships the people had being through since the closure of the land borders.
