The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, said on Wednesday that nation’s land borders may soon be reopened.
The borders were closed in August 2019.
Ahmed, who spoke with State House correspondents on Wednesday, stated that the presidential committee set up on the matter has completed its job and has recommended the reopening of the borders.
According to her, the committee would soon submit its report to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Thereafter, she said a formal pronouncement would be made on the matter.
Ahmed, however, did not disclose when the report will be submitted and how soon the land borders will be reopened.
