FG-Goods Coming Into Nigeria Must Have 30% Local Input

The Federal Government said that goods coming into the Country must have 30 per cent local input.

It also stated that ECOWAS countries must respect rules of origin, vowing that Nigeria will no longer tolerate repackaging of imported goods.

These were some of the conditions handed down to ECOWAS countries clamoring the re-opening of the land borders which were shut over smuggling of rice, guns and other contrabands into Nigeria from the neighboring countries.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama stated this during the meeting of the inter-ministerial committee on the temporary partial closure of land borders held at the ministry.

He maintained that goods imported for the Nigerian market must be escorted directly from the port of member states directly to the borders.
