Shehu Sani, a former Nigerian Senator, activist and author has explained that the previous order by the Nigerian president, Muhammad Buhari to shut down the Nigerian border was not a wise decision.
According to a post made by Shehu Sani, the same decision that the Nigerian president, Muhammad Buhari took would have impacted Nigerians negatively if the other countries replicated the same order to shut down their borders on Nigerians following the large number of people residing in the neighbouring countries as refugees.
“President Buhari is proud of closing the borders while about 339,667 Nigerian refugees according to UNHCR figures are currently hosted in Chad, Cameroun and Niger Republic. If our neighbours also closed their borders what could have been the fate of these victims? Shehu Sani asked.
This was after the Nigerian president identified as Muhammadu Buhari disclosed that he purposely shut down the Nigerian borders because he wanted the country to become good sufficient and independent of other countries, especially its neighbours.
