The Nigerian Customs Service announced the prohibition of importation of vehicles through land borders. The ban is to take effect from 1st January, 2017

The proposed ban would cause untold hardship to Nigerians as many Nigerians would be unable to afford the cost that are shipped from distant places. This is already been witnessed in the ban on importation of rice in the country.

It is unfortunate that the government can come up with such a policy at this time of economic crisis. As it is clear it would lead to further loss of jobs. The policy poses more harm than good as it will lead to smuggling, increase in prices of cars,etc and all these will worsen the recession.

The House of Representatives urged the Federal government to immediately suspend the ban.
