Abuja - Importers of vehicles have been urged to utilise the grace period until December 31 to clear their imports ahead of the ban announced on Monday.
Customs announced the Federal Government had banned the importation of vehicles into Nigeria through the land borders.
The prohibition order covers all new and used vehicles.
The ban is sequel to a Presidential Directive restricting all vehicle imports to Nigeria Sea Ports only. The order takes effect from January 1, 2017.
