Mixed reactions are trailing the Nigerian senate’s rejection of the federal government’s ban on the importation of cars through land borders.
TVC News Edmond Awadje reports that government’s enforcement on the ban on importation of vehicles through land borders came into effect on the first day of January this year.
Since then, the ban has continued to elicit condemnations especially from dealers in fairly used cars and others who make a living from activities of the sector.
But some analysts in Port Harcourt have different perspectives.
The analysts also spoke on likely economic implications of the decision.
Which ever way the pendulum eventually swings, many say the interest of the thousands of Nigerians likely to be thrown into an already over saturated labour market, should be taken into consideration by the government.
