The Federal Government of Nigeria has approved the re-opening of the Seme land border for the importation of vehicles.
According to Vanguard, The Director of Road Transport in the Ministry of Transportation, Ibrahim Musa, disclosed this on Wednesday, June 21, 2023.
Musa, who spoke at the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, a meeting organised between officials of Nigeria and the Benin Republic, revealed that the development followed complaints by freight forwarders operating at the Seme border.
“I was here with the former Minister of State for Transportation when the freight forwarders pleaded that the border should be reactivated for the free movement of goods and services.
The former minister made us prepare a memo to that effect. It was considered and sent to the government,” he said.
