President Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday, said two months into closure of Nigeria’s land border, smuggling activities had been curbed. Noting that he was not sure of re-opening date, Buhari said the decision will save the country billions of naira on import bills.

It always thinks first of the other person. The biblical phrase is it “is not self-seeking.”
