Majority of Nigerians see cross-border movement as difficult

A majority of Nigerians value their right to move freely within West Africa but say that crossing borders for work or trade is difficult, according to the latest Afrobarometer survey.
The survey findings provide a snapshot of Nigerians’ mixed views on their country’s international relations, including their difficulties in crossing international borders, their assessment of assistance provided by the African Union (AU) and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), their preference for the United States as a model for Nigeria’s development, and their appreciation of China’s contributions as a business and development partner.
