Closing Nigeria’s borders: Daniel Edah’s 04 recommendations to Beninese state

Daniel Edah, a former candidate in the 2016 presidential election, proposes a new reflection on the closure of Nigeria’s borders. In an op-ed published on his Facebook page, he offers 04 recommendations for benin’s government to deal with the crisis.

Contrary to what is currently being done, Daniel Edah believes that we must stop the belligerent communication and think about other strategies. According to him, the best strategy to adopt today is to invest in local production and processing

We must therefore avoid any official or unofficial belligerent communication against nigerian government and nigerian businessmen and instead engage in production for our local consumption and the sub-regional market,” he writes.

In the meantime, he calls the government to follow the 04 recommendations below to manage the crisis caused by the border closure.
1. inform the Benin people about the steps taken with nigerian authorities;
2. continue these steps towards a truce;
3. take  urgently accompanying measures to alleviate the sufferness of domestic producers and entrepreneurs who depend on the nigerian market, and
4. begin the process of overhauling the structure of our economy currently dominated by import consumption.
