Nigeria to reopen land borders January 2020


Nigeria is to reopen its land borders on January 31, 2020.

This was contained in a circular dated November 1, 2019 (NCS/ENF/ABJ/221/S.45) and signed by the Comptroller of Customs in charge of enforcement, Victor David Dimka, to the Sector Coordinators, joint border operations drill (Exercise Swift Response), Sectors 1, 2, 3 & 4.

The circular conveyed the directive from President Muhammadu Buhari and directed them to note the new development and comply accordingly.

The borders have been shut since August in the government’s bid to burn the smuggling of prohibited items such as cars and rice.
