Nigeria fully open for business, Buhari tells Ghana, others
Written by admin on January 1, 2021
The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), says the recent reopening of the land borders will boost the fortunes of business owners in the country.
Buhari, who stated this in his 2021 New Year Broadcast on Friday, informed West African neighbours like Ghana, Togo, Benin Republic, amongst others that Nigeria is now “fully open” for business in the Year 2021.
He said, “With the recent opening of our borders, we expect that the pent-up demand of legitimate cross-border and international trade will boost the fortunes of the many small businesses and agricultural enterprises that depend on Nigeria’s trade and commerce.
Nigeria had in August 2019 closed its land borders to curtail illegal importation of drugs, small arms, and agricultural products into the country from neighbouring West African nations.
