Obinwannem News Afenifere faults FG over closure of Southern borders

Yoruba-Pan socio-political organisation, Afenifere, has slammed Federal Government over its intentional closure of some land borders while others (up North) are opened for some firms in the country .

In a communique issued Wednesday, during the monthly meeting of the association held at the residence of its leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, the group blamed the Federal Government for the development, stating such action was borne out of an apartheid policy.

The communiqué signed by its publicity secretary, Mr Yinka Odumakin reads: “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 N 30 bn 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!”
