Nigeria reopens borders with Benin
December 28, 2020
Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari reopened his country’s borders with neighboring Benin leading to a resumption of crossings, according to media reports.
Regardless, the ban imposed specifically on imports of poultry, rice, and some other products continues, even though many Nigerians live in poverty and need poultry.
Land borders between Nigeria and Benin were closed to goods in August 2019. Limited passage was allowed for people crossings, because of the coronavirus pandemic, through 2020.
