Nigeria fully open for fair and equitable business – Buhari
The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), says Nigeria is once again fully open for those willing to conduct business in a fair and equitable way.
Buhari, who stated this in his 2021 New Year Broadcast on Friday, informed West African neighbors like Ghana, Togo, Benin Republic, amongst others that Nigeria is now “fully open” for business in the Year 2021.
He said, “With the recent opening of our borders, we expect that the pent-up demand of legitimate cross-border and international trade will boost the fortunes of the many small businesses and agricultural enterprises that depend on Nigeria’s trade and commerce.
Recall, that Nigeria had in August 2019 closed its land borders to curtail illegal importation of drugs, small arms, and agricultural products into the country from neighboring West African nations.
However, yielding to genuine calls and reports, the Federal Government on December 16 ordered the immediate reopening of the Seme Border in Lagos State, Illela Border in Sokoto State, Maigatari Border in Jigawa State, and Mfun Border in Cross River State.
