NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCES ADVICE ON TRAVEL TO THE US

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa has advised Nigerians who have no compelling or urgent reason to travel to the US to postpone their travel plans until the new administration’s policy on immigration is clear.

In a statement in Abuja by Abdurrahman Balogun, Special Assistant on Media to Dabiri-Erewa said that the warning became imperative due to series of reports received by the office of the SSA.

“In the last few weeks, the office has received a few cases of Nigerians with valid multiple-entry US visas being denied entry and sent back to the Nigeria.”

“In such cases reported to the office, such affected persons were sent back immediately on the next available flight and their visas were cancelled.”

Dabiri -Erewa said that “no reasons were given for the decision by the US immigration authorities.”

The Presidential aide said that the statement “is only to advise Nigerians without any compelling or essential reasons to visit the US to consider rescheduling their trip until there is clarity on the new immigration policy.”

She, however, reminded Nigerians in the Diaspora to abide by the rules and regulations of their host countries and be good ambassadors of the country.

  1. So what is the Nigerian govt going to do concerning those with valid multiple visa that were cancelled and sent back without any reason. What step is the government taking concerning it’s citizens. Is this not an indirect way of putting travel ban on Nigeria. I think Abike and foreign office to challenge or demand a reason for the action of the USA immigration authority instead of advising Nigerian to put a hold on their travelling. If they are not ready to issue visa or to start cancelling visas let them close their embassy in Nigeria and get out. These people have paid for their visas are they going to be refunded?
