The Vice-President of Nigeria, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, has stated that the Federal Government is working towards reopening land borders. Osinbajo made this known during a webinar organised by The Africa Report, themed, ‘Bouncing back: Nigeria’s post-pandemic recovery plan’. “We are working with our neighbours to see on what terms we would reopen those borders. At the moment, we are undertaking joint border patrols to control smuggling along the borders and we think it is working and I’m sure that soon enough we should have the borders opened’’, he said. In 2019, the President, Muhammadu Buhari, had ordered the closure of theses borders .
We hope to reopen land borders soon – Osinbajo
