President Goodluck Jonathan has ordered the closure of all borders from midnight on Wednesday for the period of the elections. He ordered the immigration service to ensure that non Nigerians are not allowed to vote.
In a press release signed by the permanent secretary in the ministry of internal affairs, Abubakar Magaji, on behalf of the minister comrade Abba Moro, he noted that the closure of the borders is necessary to allow for the peaceful conduct of the general elections.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
