Nigeria and South Africa should use their influence to block this move as soon as possible. Our economy cannot even contain us, why should we allow more people to come in as they wish? Besides, we do not have adequate border control agencies so how do we stop terrorists and potential terrorists from infiltrating our territory?

I doubt if Nigeria needs a union to belong. I was even hoping we pull out of ECOWAS. What can I say? It is not as if we can even secure our borders. There are more NIGERIENs leaving at angwan dere gwagwalada Abuja than there are NIGERIANs.
What is the benefit?
This people don't pay tax.
Most are criminals, stealing from people who buy them the bike the ride or stealing the bike of other riders.
Which is more, they get to vote as if they are Nigerians.
Some even enjoy more benefit in Nigeria than other NIGERIANs.
I tell you with how things are going, a Nigerien will rule Nigeria before a Gwari and this is sad.
What is the benefit of the free movement of ECOWAS to Nigeria
Let's answer this before opening our borders to Somalis and more Nigeriens.

Very sensible thought, by far better this passport nonsense, or even make visa on arrival on presentation of return ticket and hotel booking

What about foreigners coming in to take the job the real citizens can benefit from?
Because that's why UK voted to exit EU.

Its only less than smart people in UK that think like this. Take which job? Thats practically impossible since UK companies are mandated to consider UK citizens for jobs. On the other hand, how about the millions that relocate and invest in the country? Its mostly menial jobs that migrants get anyways

Let's answer this before opening our borders to Somalis and more Nigeriens.

you've said it all. those Nigeriens are in Lagos too begging for alms, riding motorcycles and being employed as gate men, and other petty stuffs and they pretend to be from Northern Nigeria, always claiming borno state.

but I don't think the east-northerners care. they have two major things in common; religion and language.

I also think the Nigerians form a large part of bokoharam.

Nigeria contributes a large portion to ECOWAS, without Nigeria, there's no ECOWAS. but then for a successful regional integration, let's put our country in order first.
ECOWAS being established as an economic regional integration organisation has done nothing, absolutely nothing to the growth of the Nigerian economy.

very few countries in Africa are ready to fully commit to the AU.

African institutions are always good at making decisions that can't be implemented. THE CEMAC ( Association of Central African States) has been unable to implement free movement of persons since its creation. Small and better doing economies like Guinea Equatorial and Gabon fear a free movement of persons will lead to an over take of their population which stands at over 600.000 and 1.6 million respectively. So whats this wishful thinking about opening of borders in 2018. How possible is that at 3018 even!
