The Federal Government of Nigeria is set to reopen land borders in the country, Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, has revealed.
It can be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the closure of land borders in October last year, to check smuggling of goods and arms into the country after a partial closure of the Seme Border in August 2019.

The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, gave this indication during an interview with State House correspondents on Wednesday.

Ahmed said the presidential committee set up on the matter has completed its job and has recommended the reopening of the borders.

She said the committee would soon submit its report to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), following which a formal pronouncement would be made on the matter.

The minister did not, however, disclose when the report will be submitted and how soon the land borders will be reopened.
