Parish Priest of Church of Assumption Chongo’ Pyeng, Jos, Rev. Fr. Kizito Fogos has said closing Nigeria’s land borders is the best for the nation.
Rev. Kizito said the decision will make the country realize its full potential and also aid the growth of its economy.
He added that it will make the country become a self-sufficient economy and we can start consuming what we produce.
His words, “I am totally in support of the government’s decision to close all our land borders because it will make us realise our full potential.
“With this, Nigeria will no longer be a dumping ground where other countries only export into it expired products; products that are even harmful to our health.
“It is the frozen items that have been preserved with harmful chemicals and are imported to us to consume or the expired tyres that kill us on the highways.
“The hardships and challenges that come with this decision are temporary, but the long term benefits will be awesome. So, the decision remains the best.”
