Please Don’t Open Our Borders, Let It Remain Closed – APC Begs Nigeria Customs

National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Mr Adams Oshiomhole

The National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Mr Adams Oshiomhole, has hailed the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) over the recent closure of land borders, urging that the momentum be sustained until neighbouring nations respect various trade protocols with Nigeria.

Also, counting the blessings of the closure, the Comptroller General of Customs, Hameed Ali, says the partial shutdown has led to one of its highest monthly revenue of N115 billion generated in September and N9.2 billion generated in one day. He also said there has been a remarkable drop in the influx of bandits, arms, tramadol and other prohibited items.

Speaking during a courtesy visit to the Customs boss, Oshiomhole said the party has observed the positive changes which the closure has had on the economy, charging various authorities to ensure Nigeria does not become a dumping ground for various substandard goods in its efforts to retain its title as the big brother of Africa.

He said the party was fully aware of what he termed an organized pressure to blackmail the Service to rescind its decision on border closure.

While urging the Customs boss not to succumb to such pressure, the APC Chairman said Nigeria’s national policy cannot be premised on cheap poisonous foods that are imported by Shylock Nigerian businessmen in cahoot with their counterparts overseas.
