Border closure: Buhari government t gets strong warning


The Action Democratic Party (ADP) governorship candidate in Lagos State, Babatunde Gbadamosi, says the continued closure of land borders by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government would undermine the country’s economy.
   

   
The business mogul gave the warning on Wednesday in Lagos, while speaking with journalists.

President Muhammadu Buhari had on November 1 approved the extension of the operation code-named Exercise Swift Response.

But Gbadamosi said the closure was having adverse effects on the citizens both in Nigeria and neighbouring countries.

”It is clear that the agenda behind it is completely not for economic growth, because it will affect the earning capacity of people. If that happens, many people will not be able to meet their needs”, NAN quoted him as saying.
   

   
“Consequently, many sectors of the nation’s economy will be affected within and in the neighbouring countries that have built large doses of subscriptions on us.

”The closure will more or less affect the economy, instead of improving it. Government needs to open the economy in such a way to attract more trade and industries.”

Gbadamosi said that there were so many ways borders could be closed to check arms smuggling and crimes like banditry without total closure.

He urged Nigeria to take a cue from the developed countries with tight border controls without total lock down. NAN
