In compliance with the directive of President Bola Tinubu on immediate reopening of land border with Niger Republic, the Controller, Nigeria Customs Service, Kebbi State command, Iheanacho Ojike, has reopened Kamba land border.

While re-opening the border, Ojike said Kamba is a strategic border with a major share in Kebbi State revenue generation.

This was contained in a statement signed by the spokesman of the command, SP Mohammed Saliu, and made available to newsmen on Sunday.

“The border reopening was aimed at paving the way for legitimate trade that would impact positively on nation building, not permission for importation of prohibited items that would threaten the economy and compromise national security.

“Men of the command are ever ready to facilitate legitimate trade and act within the ambit of the law to simplify trade across Kamba border seamlessly as long as stakeholders import what is permitted by Customs extant laws, make proper declaration and pay appropriate duties to the Federal Government coffers.

“Let me also make it known that food grains are still prohibited for exportation out of the country, considering the scarcity of food in the country,” Ojike said.

Responding, Mallam Fana, the district community head, commended the efforts of the Federal Government while emphasising the new wave of hope the border re-opening will give to his people who have interest in cross-border businesses.
