2015: FG reopens sea borders

The Federal government has reopened all the country’s sea borders barely a day after closing them down along with all land borders ahead of Saturday’s Presidential election.

Minister of Interior, Abba Moro disclosed this yesterday while speaking with the media after the commissioning of Koto- Karfe Medium Prison. He said that the Federal government had received counsel that the action was going to affect the country’s economic activities at the seaports.

Moro however, assured that officers and men of the Nigeria Immigration Service have been directed to effectively monitor movements in and out of the country’s sea borders before, during and after the election. The Nigerian government, in a statement on Wednesday had directed that all Nigeria’s land and sea borders be closed from 12.00 mid night Wednesday 25th March, 2015 to 12.00 mid night of Saturday 28th March, 2015.
