Buhari extends border closure to January 31st

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the extension of the ongoing closure of Nigeria’s borders till January 31, 2020.

The directive was announced in a memo signed and dated November 1, 2019, by Victor Dimka, the Comptroller of Customs in charge of Enforcement, Investigation and Inspectorate, and addressed to Sector Coordinators of the Joint Border Operation Drill – Sectors 1, 2, 3, and 4.

The content of the memo was published by Channels television.

The extension is said to have been necessitated by the need to meet up with other strategic objectives of the federal government

Nigeria closed its land borders in August, three months after signing the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (ACFTA).
