More “Hardship” for Badagry Border Communities as Customs ban Petrol Stations 20KM to the Border

The federal government, through the Nigeria Customs Service, has directed that petroleum products should not be supplied to fuel stations within 20km of the borders.

The Comptroller General of Customs, Hammed Ali issued the directive in a memo dated November 6.

This development may bring about further hardship to residents in the border communities of Badagry. But the government says the continued closure of the border will bring about more economic prosperity for the country.
