“We Will Soon Reopen Nigerian Land Borders” – President Buhari



Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari has disclosed that the Nigerian land borders will soon be reopened to neighbouring countries.

Buhari made this known on his official Twitter page after a closed door meeting with the 36 state governors of the country.

The meeting with 36 state governors was held to tackle the issue of security as each governor is charged with the responsibility of working with traditional rulers and community members to improve local intelligence gathering that will aid the work of security agencies.

The President, who listened to presentations by a governor from each of the six geo-political zones on their specific security challenges, recalled that in the old order communities identified new comers and passed information to constituted authority.


On his Twitter page, he said;

“In my meeting with State Governors today I explained that the closure of Nigeria’s land borders was partly an attempt to control the smuggling in of weapons & drugs. Now that the message has sunk in with our neighbours, we’re looking into reopening the borders as soon as possible.”
