Presidency Reacts To US Visa Ban On Nigerians by presidency: 3:45pm On Feb 01
STATE HOUSE PRESS RELEASE

UNITED STATES SUSPENSION OF THE ISSUANCE OF IMMIGRANT VISAS TO NIGERIANS

On 31st January 2020, the United States (U.S) Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced temporary travel restrictions on six (6) countries including Nigeria.

For Nigeria, the restriction is the suspension of the issuance of “immigrant visas” to Nigerian passport holders only. This suspension shall come into effect on 21st February 2020. The suspension does not apply to other U.S visas such as those for official, business, tourism and student travel.

The DHS states the suspension of “immigrant visas” became necessary following a review and update of the methodology (performance metrics) adopted by the U.S Government to assess compliance of certain security criteria by foreign governments. This resulted in certain enhancements on how information is shared between Nigeria and the U.S.

Nigeria remains committed to maintaining productive relations with the United States and its international allies especially on matters of global security. Accordingly, President Muhammadu Buhari has established a committee, to be chaired by the Hon. Minister of Interior, to study and address the updated U.S. requirements. The committee will work with the U.S Government, INTERPOL and other stakeholders to ensure all updates are properly implemented.

Modified: To those who are quoting me, sebi those migrants that they are about to stop dont pay for visa as Usa to Nigeria is visa free, flight ticket free and they always travel to Usa empty handed

Had it been the ban came from Obama, they will be claiming that it is because they rejected GAY IMPOSITION... A president that will not follow court orders, where book haram members are released on the notion that they have been rehabilitated, where Christians are killed without the repercussion... At least umu efi now know that they are messing up

This is a Nation that does not joke or play politics with it's National security. Buhari went to Egypt and announced everybody is welcomed to Nigeria.
This is a red flag especially as there won't be proper documentation of these migrants, and getting Nigerian international passport is like buying pure water, so terrorists can easily gain entry into the USA via Nigeria.

Also considering the government's ineptude, incompetent, insincere and complacent mode of handling security issues, especially the treating of terrorists to buffet and releasing them to continue unleashing terror, so tactically and technically, Nigeria may be serving as a breeding ground for terrorists, to be sent to America.

American President is not a DULLARD like Nigerian president.

America does not know me, they do not know you, all they know are the following:
President - Terrorist in Chief
COAS (Buratai) - Corrupt terrorist.
Malami (Justice Minister) - Terrorist
El-Rufai - Terrorist (Body Bag Governor)
Finance Minister - Terrorist (God created Fulani to value cows more than Humans) etc.
Why will they not Ban us?

Our country is practically grounded. The problem of Insecurity we are lamenting about is replicated and even worse in other sectors of our economy. If our US & Chinese embassy website still has GEJ as President then you should know that our country has stopped working since May 29 2015.
