Nigerian Govt Bans Export And Import Through Land Border...

The Federal Government Monday announced a total ban on the importation and exportation of goods through the land borders nationwide.








 It was gathered that the decision was in furtherance of the on-going joint border operation, tagged, Exercise Swift Response. Daily Trust reports that the operation began on August 20, 2019, involving the Nigeria Customs Service and the Immigration Service with support from the Army and other security agencies.


The joint border security is being coordinated by the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) and covers the four geopolitical zones including South-south, South-west, North-central and the North-west.


Briefing newsmen in Abuja, the Comptroller General of Customs, Col. Hameed Ali (rtd) said: “The issue of movement of goods is not the same thing with movement of persons. Let’s understand that all perishable items are on prohibition whether on export or import. Therefore nobody can carry tomato to the border to import or export. So it makes it easier for us to close and ensure that all goods for now are banned from being exported or imported through our land borders.



“That is to ensure that we have total control over what comes in and what we do. We are strategising on how best the goods can be handled when we get to when this operation will relax,” he said. Ali, however, advised local dealers who want to export or to import items to use the seaports which is the only access at present.


On when the operation which is nearly two months will end, Ali said, “It is as long as it will take our neighbours to come to the table and agree to execute exactly what was agreed during former Olusegun Obasanjo’s time which is simple adherence to ECOWAS transit procedure. That has not happened.”

  6. ...and when other west African nations retaliate, Nigeria will cry blue murder. You will all not call your government to order now oo. Even Ecowas is silent on this, the world is watching. No one should say other west African countries are sacking Nigerians from doing petty trading in their countries oo while your president has shut the border and people's goods are stuck and getting spoilt at your borders. Nigerians will go as far as selling even in traffic in other people's countries but exporting by border which people bring as wholesale supplies are being turn away.

    1. The sọ called goods are not even made in those African countries, their major market is Nigeria and we have right to say no to what we don't want.

  10. They are not concerned about the impart this law is having on the common man, woman and children...

    Now if you no get enough money,you can't prepare or have a good satisfying meal even if na once wey person money fit carry.

    Some of the locally made products that they're shouting upandown,have now inflated their prices,extorting people with their low quality products and making it difficult for low income earners to survive with their meagre salaries

    I don't see how thunder will not locate this people swiftly

  12. It's actually a good move but the government should ensure that local producers and farmers receive enough support so that they won't increase price of their products unnecessarily because that's where they will get wrong

  15. Closing Land borders and banning importation of food items. Ok o. Quick to take action on things that benefits the masses but see nothing wrong in medical tourism abroad. Give Us (masses) food. Nigeria is not yet self sufficient in food production. All the seized wares at the borders are being distributed to the politicians.
    May hardship and starvation be the lot of those supporting this evil and deceptive govt
