Reopen border with Benin Republic, Osun traditional ruler begs Tinubu

Oba Hameed Oyelude, the Olowu of Kuta in Ayedire Local Government of Osun, has appealed to President Bola Tinubu to reopen the nation’s border with Benin Republic.

Oba Oyelude, who made the appeal in a chat with journalists on Sunday in his palace in Kuta, said the reopening of the border would ease the burden of Nigerians economically.

“At the time the Benin Republic border was closed, the Federal Government was protecting the economy of the country.

“But I want to urge the President to look at the possibility of reopening the border to ease the pain of Nigerians,” he said.

Oba Oyelude also urged Nigerians to be patient with the President, noting that he meant well for the country by removing the subsidy on fuel.

He urged the Federal Government not to completely take every advice and policy of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Oba Oyelude said although there was nothing wrong in domesticating IMF ideas and policies, but the same must be done in a way that will suit the country. (NAN)
