Cooperation: “Borders will remain closed…” General Director of nigerian Customs Hamid Ali

Visiting the Niger-Nigeria border on 11 wednesday September 2019, nigerian Customs General Director Hamid Ali insisted that the borders should remain closed until the countries affected by the measures take their Responsibilities.

On wednesday the costums general director said that his country, Nigeria could no longer cross its arms watching such countries prosper at the expense of the nigerian economy. The information relayed by the Daily Trust is related to the countries bordering Nigeria including Benin and Niger. Smuggling leaves these two countries, in particular, to invade the nigerian market, the nigerian authorities have lamented. For the Customs’s GD, the borders will only be reopened when the countries concerned are ready to take into account the requirements of Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Hamid Ali informs however, that the doors of dialogue remain open for countries wishing to review the clauses of good camaraderie in order to save his country’s economy. It must be said that his movement is part of the supervision of the operation initiated for almost a month to prevent all products from returning to nigerian land. Certainly the countries concerned will take steps to reassure the Eastern giant of compliance with export rules.

On 20 August, Nigeria locked his  borders because smuggling from neighbouring countries pollutes his economic environment. Benin, a transit country suffers enormously. Both, state and the people are paying the price for the Buhari administration’s decision to block all goods at the border.

    The earlier will be better. The general had better go back to his sens instead and know that very soon his population will raise up requesting for the opening of those borders.
