BREAKING: FG ORDERS CLOSURE OF BORDERS FOR GOVERNORSHIP, STATE ASSEMBLY POLLS

The federal government has ordered the closure of borders for the Saturday, March 9, governorship and state Assembly elections.

Continentour.com.ng reports that the minister of interior Lt.-Gen. (retd) Abdulrahman Dambazau, said the closure would take effect from Friday, March 8, at noon to Sunday, March 10, at noon.

It was gathered that the Comptroler-General, Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Muhammad Babandede announced this in a statement in Abuja on Thursday, March 7.

This, he said, is to restrict movements across the borders during the election days. “The public is to take note and ensure compliance,” Babandede said.

Meanwhile, Continentour.com.ng had previously reported that the federal government opened land borders across the country after the conduct of the presidential and National Assembly election.

It was reported that on its official twitter page, the Nigeria Immigration said that the passengers’ clearance exercise resumed at Jibia border control post, following the re-opening of all the land borders by noon on Sunday, February 24.

The government agency had noted that the movement activities resumed at Kongolam, Seme and Baban Mutum border control posts following government’s directives for re-opening after the 2019 presidential and National Assembly elections.
