How border closure will affect yahoo yahoo – CBN governor

In a bid to calm wailing Nigerians over the recent border closure, the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria,  Godwin Emefiele, has said that security challenges and cyber crimes in Nigeria would reduce, if the Federal Government sustains border closure for two years.

Emefiele reportedly said this as a guest speakers in Edo State on Friday, November 1, 2019, at the 1st convocation lecture of Edo University.

The CBN governor said the government has recorded successes since it decided to partially close the land borders in August.  He added that with the successes, many youths, who have taken to crime would have no option but to embrace agriculture.

He said, “I can tell you that if we leave these borders closed for another two years, Boko Haram will reduce. I can tell you that Kidnapping and ‘Yahoo-Yahoo’ will reduce because they will now see that the only place that they can make money is in agriculture and not in kidnapping people”.
According to the CBN Governor, most of the arms being brought into the country were smuggled in through the borders. But ever since the borders were shut, the development has yielded good results.

According to him, one week after the borders were closed, the President of the Rice Farmers Association called to say that all the rice in their warehouses had been sold. “The poultry people also called to say they have sold all their eggs,” he said.
