Nigerians on social media have reacted to the Federal Government's decision to exempt Dangote from border closure.
According to reports, the government gave only Dangote the order to resume exports across its land borders, despite the closure of all land borders by the government for over one year.
The move has, however, got many Nigerians talking on social media. See some comments below;

@AtedoPeterside wrote “Allowing legitimate exporters & importers to move their goods across the border should be a no-brainer. Why refuse everybody else & allow only one company (Dangote)? This is why some of us argue that the Nigerian economy is rigged in favor of a handful of well-connected persons”
