Oba Hameed Oyelude, the Olowu of Kuta in Ayedire Local Government of Osun State, has urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to reopen the nation’s border with Benin Republic.

Oba Oyelude, who spoke with journalists at his palace in Kuta, stated that the reopening of the border would ease the burden of Nigerians economically.

He said, “At the time the Benin Republic border was closed, the Federal Government was protecting the economy of the country.

“But I want to urge the President to look at the possibility of reopening the border to ease the pain of Nigerians.”

Recall that the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has reopened the international boarder at Kamba town in Dandi Local Government Area of Kebbi State to promote international trading between Nigeria and Niger and Benin Republics.

Mohammed Tajuddeen-Salisu, the spokesperson of the Kebbi Area Command of the service, in a statement yesterday in Birnin Kebbi, the Kebbi State capital, said: “The newly appointed Customs Area Comptroller (CAC), Kebbi Command, Mr. Iheanacho Ernest-Ojike, on Friday, reopened border for international trade, as directed by the Comptroller-General of the Customs, Mr. Bashir Adewale-Adeniyi.”
