The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), says the new resuming of the land fringes will support the fortunes of entrepreneurs in the nation.
Buhari, who expressed this in his 2021 New Year Broadcast on Friday, educated West African neighbors like Ghana, Togo, Benin Republic, among others that Nigeria is presently "completely open" for business in the Year 2021.
He stated, "With the new opening of our fringes, we expect that the repressed interest of authentic cross-outskirt and worldwide exchange will help the fortunes of the numerous private companies and rural ventures that rely upon Nigeria's exchange and trade.
"The message to our West African neighbors is that Nigeria is indeed completely open for those ready to lead business in a reasonable and impartial manner."
Nigeria had in August 2019 shut its property fringes to reduce illicit importation of medications, little arms, and horticultural items into the nation from neighboring West African countries.
Yet, the Federal Government on December 16 arranged the prompt resuming of the Seme Border in Lagos State, Illela Border in Sokoto State, Maigatari Border in Jigawa State, and Mfun Border in Cross River State.
