Nigerians have been criticising the ban imposed on importation of vehicles through land borders by the Federal Government.
The issue has been the the main topic of discuss in the public domain and has been generating divergent views mostly among the middle class whose only hope of riding cars lie on fairly used cars.
The Federal Government banned the importation of vehicles into the country through land borders on Monday.
Nigeria customs service, through the Public Relations Officer, Wale Adeniyi, said “the prohibition order covers all new and used vehicles”.
Mr. Adeniyi also said the ban was sequel to a presidential directive restricting all vehicle imports to Nigeria’s Sea Ports only.
The order will be taking effect from the first of January 2017.
Meanwhile the National Human Rights Commission is working towards bringing an end to the increasing cases of human rights violations especially during elections in nigeria.
Executive Secretary of the commission, Bem Angwe disclosed this in Abuja, while addressing the media on the re-accreditation of the commission to ‘a’ status.
Professor Angwe reiterated the resolve of the commission to enlighten Nigerians on their rights.
