The Country Director for the African Continental Free Trade Area ( AfCFTA), Mr Louis Yaw Afful, has disclosed that the Nigerian government will not open its borders anytime soon.
This, according to the director, is because the border closure is raking the country some N2 million monthly since the action was taken.
Mr Afful said this while speaking on the ‘Business Focus” show on Accra based TV3.
He opined that no foreign policy can persuade the Nigerian authorities to open the borders for traders from neighboring countries to enter into the country with their goods.
“The economic reasons why it’s closed is stronger than any foreign policy that we are all talking about,” he said.
