Reps want Nigeria fenced: Wall of Nigeria?
The House of Representatives has proposed the construction of a perimeter fence with sensors and cameras to check illegal influx of foreigners into the country.
The house at its proceedings on Thursday, directed its Committee on Immigration to work with the Ministry of Interior and Immigration service for the construction of the border fence.
The motion which was moved by Hassan Saleh, was unanimously adopted following the spate of insecurity in some parts of the country.
The motion also proposed better working conditions for those posted to the nation’s borders.
The lawmakers are particularly concerned about the influx of foreigners through the nation’s borders and they resolved that urgent steps must be taken to check this trend.
