Reopen southern borders now, Afenifere tells Buhari

11

THE pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, has condemned the continuous closure of some land borders on the orders of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), while some others are opened for some firms in the country.

The group blamed the Federal Government for the development, alleging that it was involved in an apartheid policy in that regard.

This was contained in the communiqué issued at the end of the monthly meeting of the association held at the residence of its leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, in Akure, the Ondo State capital, on Wednesday.

The communiqué was read by the Publicity Secretary of the group, Mr Yinka Odumakin.

The group said, “We condemn Buhari government’s attitude of a dog that breastfeeds its own puppies and kills other animals for lunch as per the management of borders. While the Seme and other southern borders have been closed for a year now against our people and recently opened for the use to Dangote and BUA, Nigeria is constructing a rail line and about N30bn highway to connect with Fulani in Niger Republic with whom the Fulani running Nigeria have cultural kinship.

“We reject this apartheid policy and demand the reopening of Seme and other southern borders now!”
