He maintained that the closure did not stop international trade but would rather enhance dignified trade.

“Nigeria has hard working men and women across the 36 state, with a committed government to support them earn more values for what they produce. So, we are not ending trade with countries or organisations with genuine intentions but taking steps to ensure that it is done in accordance with global best practices and trade laws.”
