“For now, all goods, whether illicit or non-illicit, are banned from going and coming into Nigeria" (by land).

“We hope that by the time we get to the end of this exercise, we would have exactly between we and our neighbors agree on the type of goods that should enter and exit our country.
“For now, all goods, whether illicit or non-illicit, are banned from going and coming into Nigeria.
“Let me add that for the avoidance of doubt that we included all goods because all goods can equally come through our seaports.
“For that reason, we have deemed it necessary for now that importers of such goods should go through our controlled boarders (Air and Sea) where we have scanners to verify the kind of goods and how healthy to our people can be conducted.
