Nigeria Closes Borders Ahead Of Polls

President Goodluck Jonathan has approved the closure of all Nigeria’s land and sea borders from Wednesday, the 25th of March 2015 at 12 midnight.

A statement signed by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Interior, Mr Abubakar Magaji said.

President Jonathan also directed the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) to ensure that non-Nigerians do not participate in any part of the election process.

The closure of borders, he said, would allow for the peaceful conduct of the forthcoming 2015 general elections which was rescheduled to hold March 28 and April 11.
