The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, 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.

A statement in Abuja by Dabiri-Erewa’s media aide, Abdurrahman Balogun, 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,” she said. 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.

The cost of running this country is very high. The problem of this country is not really about what party rules, but the fact that we spend so much maintaining irrelevant positions.

These people are mad o.

There is a Ministry of foreign affairs, but Abike has decided to usurp their role and issue stupid statements.

SSA with her own SSA. Buhari and his government are as confused as the dog Oge Okoye stole on Instagram. They don't know who or to where they belong.

I don't understand what has become of this country that we so much waste money on frivolity, just imagine this statement :

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign
Affairs and Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa --- Now, the media aide to the Senior special assistant to president Buhari on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora. I am sure that there is Special Adviser to the president on foreign affairs and disapora, that one too will have his media aid.

Even the media aid will have special adviser. And these people are still paid from the coffers of government. All ministers too have special advisers on various "nonsense".

I am waiting to see the spokesperson of the spokesperson of the senior special adviser's media aid of madness affairs to the president. RUBBISH!

Common rejection and you want Nigerians to postpone. If you like, move Isis and SA to the US, Nigerians will still go today today.

A war-torn US will provide better opportunities than a peaceful Nigeria; you, politicians across all divide, have made living in this country a survival.

Tell this to bubu. Let him and all the leaders lead by example.

I do not mean to derail this thread but these got my attention more than the real issue being discussed
A statement in Abuja by Dabiri-Erewa’s media aide, Abdurrahman Balogun, said that
. Does this mean even a Senior Special Assistant to the president also has a media aide (being paid from the nation's treasury)? Remember that there are still other Special assistants doing the same job and this probably applies to all other SSAs. Where then is the reduction in government spending that he APC promised us? We know these offices are not part of the civil service, but only a political appointment. This doesn't sound well at all. What the hell does an SSA have to say that he/she should be too busy to relay by herself/himself that would now require the employment of a media aide.

I will submit by saying however that maybe it is not a bad idea to have a media aide for such offices, but I will suggest that the office holders should be made to pay the aides from whatever they are paid as their salaries. That will now show whether or not they really need the aides.

We might all think it is funny. But until countries start deporting our citizens and GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS before Nigerians will wake up to develop their country.

Who born USA or Donald Trump papa to deport a German, Japanese, Canadian, UK, or Australian citizen without a genuine reason.

Our leaders have failed us and the youths are encouraging them
.

Imagine a President of the supposed Giant of Africa SHAMELESSLY feeling comfortable to go abroad to receive medical treatment while he is keeping it secret from his citizens. As if it is not Tax payers money they are spending.Whe they see how things work in those countries, the feel reluctant to even return to do the work they were elected to do.

If those countries they go to receive treatment were as irresponsible and corrupt as them all, no be die the likes of IBB, Shagari, Gowon, Jonathan and Buhari for don die tehteh. Baba Iyabo no dey sick, na other people wife be e own antidote.

Refuse entry into your country any Nigerian diplomatic passport. Let them stay home and develop their country.
