The Federal Government of Nigeria has been sent a memo for the reopening of the Seme land border for the importation of vehicles by the Ministry of State for Transportation.
While confirming the memo sent to the federal government during the past administration on Wednesday, the Director of Road Transport in the Ministry of Transportation, Ibrahim Musa, said that the development followed complaints by freight forwarders operating at the Seme border.
Musa, who spoke at the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, meeting organised between officials of Nigeria and Benin Republic said the freight forwarders pleaded that the border should be reactivated for the free movement of goods and services.
