These were some of the conditions handed down to ECOWAS countries clamouring the re-opening of the land borders which were shut over smuggling of rice, guns and other contrabands into Nigeria from the neighbouring countries.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama said this during the meeting of the Inter-Ministerial Committee on the Temporary Partial Closure of Land Borders held at the ministry on Monday.

He maintained that goods imported for the Nigerian market must be escorted directly from the port of member states directly to the borders.
