What was the impact of your project? How did you measure it?
My report was a reality awareness check on the porous state of Nigeria's borders and entry routes. It forced government to give a marching order on security agents to wake up in their call to man the nations borders and entry points. It also strengthened the governments resolve not to back down on its palletisation policy, which allows Customs to examine cargoes in an orderly manner.
