Solve Nigeria’s Porous Border – Alaba Lawson Tells FG
The first woman president of the Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Mining and Agriculture, Iyalode Alaba Lawson, has called on the federal government to establish transparent borders across the country.
Lawson rejected the government’s policy of closing the borders, arguing that the organized private sector was not pushed forward until the borders were closed.
He spoke Sunday in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State, in a media interview as part of his 70th birthday celebrations on 18 January.
He said: “Our neighbors can be very bad because our borders are porous; what do we do with these porous edges? And so, as stakeholders in the economy, they had to let us rob the minds together before closing that border. Now they have closed the borders and our economy is booming, but there are some areas that have been affected, even our people at the border. This shouldn’t have happened.
“But now that the borders are open, we have to close the porosity of this border. “
