BUA Group and a gas company have also received presidential approval to move goods across the land borders, Joseph Attah, the spokesperson for Nigerian Customs, said.
A number of Nigerians reacted asking the reason for this preferential treatment.
Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode reacted on Instagram by sharing a photo of Dangote and writing:
“During the Covid19 lockdown Dangote trucks were allowed to drive through Ogun state but everyone else was stopped.
“Today Dangote trucks are allowed to go through our land borders but everyone else is stopped.
“Was Nigeria created for Dangote or was Dangote created for Nigeria?”
