You are right.. They said next time fly direct to NY,
It's only one airline that can fly direct to NY Delta airline

But no delta airline in Nigeria.. Because of Buhari body
odor.

To risk airfrance or klm.. It's cost 900k. Tickets

1600 euro


Lufthanza Air france and KLM is the way to go, The land PHC daily.I find it hard to see why one will fly Turkish Airling to the US when the risk of terrorism is high there.

What he said in the embassy and what he travelled for didn't coincide.

Yes they can be prejudice but we ourselves don't help when we give false info he told them he will be traveling with family and showed up alone .

The other one the wife was pregnant you have to time it well they now know we go there to give birth go ahead of time

the reason why the two of them were denied was obvious now....1) Mr olafemi popoola was travelling with a pregnant wife with 8k without health insurance. The visa is not a medical visa . if the wife delivers by operation in USA, the cost may run into hundreds of thousands of dollars and he won't be able to pay.
2) the other man got family visa for tourism only for him to arrive alone at the border saying the wife is now busy. usually they probably told them at the embassy she would be on leave. oyinbos don't believe in vacation while your wife is in nigeria. They believe the man went ahead to prepare ground before the woman finally joins her. follow the rule of your visa and you won't have problem

The most reasonable post so far.. undecided

Thanks so much for this. I don't know why honesty is just such an expensive commodity. I just returned from the US. My going and return was very smooth. I'm even on fast track! Abeg, people should just stop trying to fool themselves.

If You are a moslem, Trump says he doesn't want you guys, the American people voted to see it through I don't understand why you are making noise. If you are a moslem, please apply for a Saudi Arabia visa because after the UK has activated article 50, Theresa may borrow a leaf from Mr Trump. It is not about being a Nigerian, loads of Nigerians were granted free passage except the Muhammedians.
Now the chain effect of having Boko haram in our backyard has grown beyond the NE, it will give most of you sense to support the only government that understands the enormity of Dasuki's action.
Aside that, haven't you heard of medical visa before? abi your wife's pregnancy isn't a medical condition? everyday we warn you guys to have basic common sense yet you won't listen, Trump is a man of consequence management, "YOU ARE FIRED" rings a bell, you are lucky you got just 5yrs ban, you need thorough flogging to reset your dubious mind to default, meanwhile the maga is claiming he doesn't know his offence, Look inside your wife's V hole, you will surely see your offence in there, bingo!!

No matter how they spin it, the PAwas wrong in her approach.

Its all about diplomacy & she lacks the authority for what she did.

Even sef 1000 people can come out with the same story, it doesn't change the fact that she erred and should be queried

We all know it's normal for people to be denied entry especially if fraud is noticed in their info given, but recent developments of late is highly discriminatory and arbitrary. It's tougher now.

This is a big lesson for you ungrateful Nigerians who went about bad mouthing Hon. Abike Dabiri.
She sounded the alarm and warning not to proceed to US for now, even despite a valid US Visa, but you castigated her as "ordinary Special Assistant , a nobody".

Between Abike and Onyeama, who would you listen to now as a reliable authority on diasporan issues?

Hope you've learned your lessons.

My brother..she really said this and alot of Nigerians were lambasting her that she should resign for misleading people.Now they have to learn their lesson the hard way.Experience they say is the best teacher.

Continue misquoting organizing Mr Trump bad while showing.. ..it has nothing to do with Muslim. It's about making America great again. He never said he don't want. Muslims but simply put he don't want Muslims who might be a threat to the USA or are not allies to the USA neither contributing to the growth of the USA. Saudi Arabia, is not on the list. Iraq is not on the list. Syria. Iran, Somalia to mention are on the list of those banned and they are obviously not allies to the USA.

“They are US border protection agents. One of them is a black American with an Igbo name, Ogbonnaya,” he stated, adding that another Nigerian was also denied entry to the US “on account of his luggage.”

If only Nigeria could do the same to some of the hundreds of American citizens visiting yearly. This is why I love the Chinese government. If Chinese citizens were being arbitrarily and discriminately denied entry into the U.S., the Chinese government would do the same to Americans visiting China.

How much aids do the Chinese get from America?
What % of the Chinese are STRUGGLING to go to America by all means?

They are stopping people flyng on turkish airline and other Islamic jets.

Nigerians are too cheap.Why not do delta airline or klm or something more European

Spot on.
This seems most likely as they cannot openly say this. It will cause a diplomatic uproar. Its possible when you connect your flight passing through one of these countries or have visited in the past, they have no way of vetting your activities there.

Two Nigerians with valid visas, who were denied entry into the United States have alleged that they were humiliated and dehumanised by the US immigration and border protection officials at th[b]e Los Angeles International Airport and the Abu Dhabi Airport in the United Arab Emirates.
[/b]

The victims, Femi Olaniyi and Popoola Olayemi, the latter having travelled to the US with his pregnant wife and two children, said their two-year multiple entry visas were revoked without any explanation before they were sent back to Nigeria by the US authorities.

Olaniyi, a real estate businessman, said he obtained his visa from the US Consulate in Lagos on December 23, 2016, adding that he had planned for a holiday in the US with his wife.

He explained that his spouse, a police officer, could not make the trip due to her official schedule.

According to him, he had planned to spend some days in California and visit a family in Indianapolis, stating that he had a hotel reservation, about $300 cash and $3,000 on his visa gold.

He said he left Lagos on a Turkish Airline on February 21, 2017 [b][/b]and on getting to the Los Angeles Airport, an immigration officer demanded his reason for visiting America which he explained.



Am confused here, he was humiliated at ABOU-DHABI airport too.....
But he took off from Lagos with turkish airline...hmmmmmmm

Who the hell is Geoffrey Onyeama? Probably one of the redundant, noise making Ministers Buhari took six months to find. How dare he appear on national television to talk on something he knows nothing about without even caring to investigate? This story has put a lie to his bogus assurances.
