The Federal Government has ordered the re-opening of all the nation’s borders closed due to the Presidential and National Assembly elections earlier scheduled on Saturday.

A statement by Comptroller-General, Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS Muhammad Babandede, in Abuja on Saturday, said that Interior Minister Abdulrahman Dambazau ordered the re-opening of the borders.

The directive to close the borders from midnight on Friday to Sunday was given by the minister on Thursday.

With the re-opening of the borders, he said that Immigration officers would continue their normal border control and patrol duties to ensure that all persons crossing Nigeria’s land, air and sea borders travelled with valid and genuine documents.
