How Border closure is affecting Nigerians.

The days of heaping 50-kilo sacks of rice across the saddle of their motorbike and slipping a few notes to a customs officer are now gone.

With Nigeria having snapped its borders shut, the legions of motorbike riders who used to satisfy the nation’s hunger for imported rice are lucky at best to sneak through a few packets of Basmati.

The smugglers risk more than just jail time if they try force or sneak across the border.

“They shoot us and kill us like goats,” said Adewole, who asked for his full name not to be published, stuttering with anger.

The some 3,000 sacks of rice per day that motorbike riders estimate they previously smuggled across the border from Benin have slowed to a trickle.

 

As a result, the price of rice has skyrocketed, from 9,000 nairas (22 euros, $24) for a 50-kilo sack, to 22,000 nairas, a price higher than Nigeria’s minimum monthly wage of 18,000 nairas.

The border closure is part of President Muhammadu Buhari’s plan to end Nigeria’s economic dependence on oil, by developing domestic agriculture and industry.

With cheap goods — smuggled or imported — long having hampered domestic producers, Buhari ordered a partial closure of the border with Benin in August.

 

This month, the borders with all neighbouring countries have been shut completely.

“The Nigerian borders will remain closed until the countries sharing borders with Nigeria” accept conditions put in place for the country’s economic policies on what is imported, warned Hameed Ali, comptroller general of the Nigeria Customs Service.

Protectionist

Analyst Adedayo Ademuwagun, of the Lagos-based consultancy Songhai, called the border closure an “extreme level protectionist policy”.

He said that the move was built on the idea that, instead of encouraging development with incentives, one can bring it about by necessity.

“They expect that by creating a gap in the supply, the industry should grow,” said Ademuwagun.

“But it’s not what’s happening.”

Nigeria has pursued this type of development strategy before, with some success.

Former president Olusegun Obasanjo, who was in office from 1999 to 2007, banned cement imports.

That helped local producers flourish, including Obasanjo protege Aliko Dangote, who now heads a multi-billion-dollar cement empire.

Not an island

Buhari may have trouble repeating that outcome, however, as the situation with rice shows.

Nigeria has been ramping up rice production, with local output rising by 60 percent since 2013, according to official figures, although specialists say they are inflated.

But at 4.8 million tonnes last year, local rice production was still not enough for the 190 million Nigerians, who spend about a tenth of their food budget on the staple.

Beyond quantity, there is also the issue of quality.

“It’s the imported rice people love,” said one trader at the market in Badagry, a coastal town between the capital Lagos and Benin.

“Nigerian rice is not good enough and too expensive.”

If you can get it.

The border closure means Nigeria is choked off from supplies until the next harvest by local farmers.

The Badagry market, usually teeming with activity thanks to its location near the border, now lacks its usual hubbub.

Not only is there almost no rice to be had, there is almost no macaroni, cooking oil, or sugar either.

“We can’t depend only on local production,” said market director Todowede Baba Oja.

“No one is on an island. We depend on one another. This suffering is getting out of hand.”

Even the butcher who sells locally-produced beef is having trouble, as his customers have little left for meat after paying higher prices for staples.

People have “no more money”, he said.

Recall that Legit.ng earlier reported that another batch of Nigerians who volunteered to return to their homeland departed South Africa onboard an Air Peace plane from OR Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg.

The returnees arrived Lagos at about at 7.21 pm.

 

The second batch includes not less than 319 Nigerians who are expected to arrive in Nigeria on Wednesday, September 18.

This was confirmed to a Legit.ng reporter by an aide to the chairman of Nigerians in diaspora commission, Honourable Abike Dabiri-Erewa.

The returnees were transported through the cargo section of the Murtala International Airport, Lagos

It was also gathered that the chief executive officer of Air Peace Airline, Allen Onyeama, explained why the company was offering free service in the evacuation of Nigerians in the wake of xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

Journalists were however not allowed to access the tarmac due to violation of air safety regulations.

Onyema told journalists on Tuesday, September 17 that there was no personal motive in extending a helping hand as the gesture was only for the good of the Nigerian people.

Why embattled Oyo-Ita was replaced by Buhari?

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of Dr Folashade Yemi-Esan as the acting Head of the Civil Service of the Federation with immediate effect.

The decision has therefore put an end to the career of the current occupant of the seat, Winifred Oyo-Ita who had been in the eye of the storm over alleged N3bn bribery and falsification of duty tour allowance.

 

The President’s decision was conveyed in a statement on Wednesday by the Director of Information in the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Willie Bassey.

The statement said Oyo-Ita had been directed to proceed on an indefinite leave to allow conclusion of the investigation being carried out by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Bassey said, “Yemi-Esan, who is the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Petroleum Resources takes over from Mrs. Winifred Ekanem Oyo-Ita, who has been directed to proceed on an indefinite leave to allow conclusion of the investigation being carried out by EFCC.”

 

The President also directed the OHCSF to commence the process for the selection of new permanent secretaries.
