FG orders total closure of land borders
The Federal Government has ordered the closure of all land borders from 00.00 hours on Saturday, March 18 to 00.00 hours on Sunday 19th of March 2023.
It was gathered that the closure was due to the Governorship and Assembly elections billed for tommorow Saturday across the nation.
The Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, Isah Jere Idris, announced the closure in a statement in Abuja on Friday.
The Comptroller-General who personally signed the statement, directed that “all Command Comptrollers, especially those in the border states are to ensure strict enforcement of the directive.”
