President Bola Tinubu has not yet issued an order to reopen all Nigerian borders, according to Wale Adeniyi, the acting comptroller general of the Nigeria Customs Service.
Only five have been reopened, according to the Comptroller General of Customs, who made this clarification following a meeting with President Tinubu on Tuesday at the State House.
Not all of Nigeria’s borders have been opened, he asserted.
“The borders remain as they were before. You may recall that from 2018 through 2022, all borders were closed fully. At the moment, only a few strategically important borders are open.

The others will soon be reopened, he added.
The Acting Comptroller of Customs stated that he would travel to The Republic of Benin in a week to look for collaborations on importation, border security, and the use of technology to challenging border circumstances.
Adeniyi believed that smuggling will soon come to a stop.
From 2018 through 2022, all of Nigeria’s land borders were shut, according to the previous president Muhammadu Buhari, to stop criminal activity.
