The House of Representatives is asking the executive arm of government to suspend its January 1, 2017  ban on the importation of vehicles through land borders.
 
Representative Abubakar Salame who moved the motion, noted that the new law will have adverse effect on citizens.
 
There was also a report from the committee on banking and currency.
 
The banning of imported vehicles through the nations land borders with effect from January 1, 2017 is still generating reactions.
 
This time it is from the Seaport Terminal Operators Association of Nigeria.
 
Its spokesman Bolaji Akinola says the approach is not holistic in addressing the challenge of smuggling .and he is calling for the reversal of the 70 percent tariff on imported vehicles as this would  boost activities at the nations ports and make  them more competitive.
