"Ignore Call To Postpone US Trip" - Foreign Minister Tells Nigerians by ijustdey: 3:11pm On Mar 07, 2017
By Abdullateef Salau |


The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, has said that Nigerians who have United States valid travel documents are free to embark on their trip.

The minister's call came barely a day after the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, advised Nigerians to postpone their US travel plans until the country's new administration's policy on immigration is clear.

She said the warning became imperative due to series of reports received by her office.

The minister, while briefing newsmen in Abuja Tuesday, urged Nigerians to dismiss any report asking them to postpone their US trip.

"This is not the case" Onyeama said, stressing that no Nigerian with valid US visa were turned back.

The minister said he had spoken to the US ambassador to Nigeria and high level US officials who said nothing of such had happened," he said.

He said Nigeria is not among the countries currently under US travel ban, noting that both countries enjoyed cordial bilateral relations.

He stressed that it is only the Office of the President and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that are credible sources of information about Nigeria's foreign relations.

There was once a hat seller who passed through
the forest.
The weather was very hot and he decided to
take a nap under one of the trees, so he left his
whole basket of hats by the side.
A few hours later, he woke up and realised that
all his hats were gone. Then he heard some
monkeys on top of the tree and looked up. To his
surprise, the tree was full of monkeys. They had
taken all his hats! The hat seller sits down and
try to think on how he could get the hats down.
He started to think and scratched his head. The
next moment, he realised that the monkeys were
doing the same thing.
Next, he took down his own hat and fanned
himself. The monkeys did exactly the same.
Then an idea struck him, he took his hat and
threw it on the floor, the monkeys did the same
too. Happily, he picked all his hats back.
** Fifty years later, one of his grandson also
became a hat seller and also got to hear the
monkey story from his grandfather.
One day, just like his grandfather, he passed
through the same forest. Feeling very hot, he
took a nap under the same tree and left the hats
on the floor.
Again like his grandfather, when he woke up, he
realised that all his hats were gone.
He looked up and found that the monkeys had
taken all his hats.
Remembering what his grandfather told him, he
started scratching his head and the monkeys
followed.
He took down his hat and fanned himself and
again the monkeys followed.
Now, very convinced of his grandfather's idea, he
threw his hat on the floor, but to his greatest
surprise, the monkeys still held onto all the hats..
Then one bold monkey climbed down the tree,
grabbed the hat on the floor and sneered,
"You think say Na only you get GRAND-PAPa...??

I knew it will finally come to this the moment Abike Dabiri started to overstep her boundaries. She lost her job description and decided to replace with Godfrey Onyema's.

Mr minister quit ego.

we had a report some few days ago of how an IT technician that was sent by his company was to the US was subjected to a written test at Kennedy airport, the said Engeneer sighted other cases of mistreatment being melted against other Nigeria immigrants to the US. What did you do about that.

The xenophobia attack in South Africa where several Nigerians were killed what did you do about it.

Is your own family members not enjoying unthreatened movement around the world with diplomatic cover?
