Either FGN is lying or Trump govt did it as election gimmick.

Very disgusting how our leaders are eager to emmigrate our people. This is when they are bragging about shutting down borders to legitimate businesses and exports because of a few contraband commodities they could not monitor. Why corruption! If Nigeria is so inept and arrogant about her borders, why should America be lenient about our people.
Shame on us!

MANNABBQGRILLS:
Good news for travellers.
That being said.........

The Real Reason US Suspends Immigrant Travel Visas On Nigerians
It has little or nothing to do with Boko Haram,
has nothing to do with Buhari,
has nothing to do with arrest and detention of journalist, has nothing to do with Nigeria’s ban on gays and lesbian, but has everything to do with absence of a workable system in our identification and verification processes.

The main reason Nigeria is suspended from Immigrant visas category is because Nigeria does not have a credible background investigation system that groups like Interpol can rely on to vert and certify originality.

What that means is that if someone commits a crime in Lagos and relocates to Kano, there’s no system that can be used to track crimes and people across state lines.

Virtually all African countries have such systems even Ghana has it, Cameroun everyone has original birth certificates but nigeria prefers to have multiple identity cards not because they are interested in monitoring and tracking people but because they want to make money. Our country is a transaction society, you can buy anything even the human conscience.

Most responsible modern states in the world have tracking systems, but nigeria does not.
A typical example, if you are about 40 years,
if you go to your primary school to get your records they don’t have it.
Principals and headmasters do not have computers in the 21st century.

Now only states that are considered rogue nations or failed states that do not have workable systems.
Most nations in this category are nations at war.
Nigeria is not at war but the irresponsible nature of our government from the beginning till now makes Nigeria a war zone.

Now, back to US suspension, let us make it clear that only Immigrants visas are affected.
Non immigrant visas are not affected.
An immigrant visas is a type of visa that allows you to stay, work or even become a US citizen after you travel.

This category involves the type of visa you get when you marry an American citizen and have to relocate or the type of visas given to parents when their American citizens file for them or the visa you get through lottery.

Another category of visa affected is birth visas,
these are medical tourism visas to come to America and have a baby.
It is those categories of visas that are affected. Some waivers do apply.
However, non immigrant visas like visitors or business visas are not affected, however going forward it will be difficult to get.

What America is saying is that we cannot continue to give immigrant visas to your people if our investigators have no tools to work with to verify the true identity of your immigrant populations.

Example, someone who wins lottery or marries a US citizen, the investigators will want to check him up to primary school, but we have no records.
Our government should be ashamed that we do not have a reliable working system to track Nigerians instead of deceiving the people to assume it is unfair what US has done.

All our previous and present government should be ashamed that today we are grouped with countries like Eritrea and Sudan.
A sensible country, what they should be doing now is to put such a system in place.
Last year, two of our American friends visited Nigeria and went back with Nigerian international passports.
That can never happen in Ghana or even Liberia.
But with money you can buy a man's conscience in Nigeria.

With as little as three to five hundred dollars people are ready to subvert the law and do the unthinkable.
With just Ten thousand Naira anyone can get local governments origin letters, worst still, today traders who never stepped their legs in universities are given degrees and people even serve youth service with fake results.
If you are America will you continue to give immigrant visas to a country you cannot verify a simple certificate?
If you are America will you continue to give citizenship to immigrants whose entire documents for relocation to your country may have been forged?

We forge ID cards, we forge bank statements to get visas, we forge birth certificates, we forge marriage certificates, we forge election results, what is it that we do not forge?

We should not blame the US, the truth is we have failed as a nation.
May God help our darling country.
God bless Nigeria.

Your messiah promise to fix all these

I think the better things for the government to address are the pushing forces which are making the Nigerian citizens to be desperate for an immigration visa to the US.

Security, good governance, working policies etc. With these, Nigerians are good to go, not bothered and concerned about any US stringent immigration policy on Nigeria by the US

Lifting this Ban will do us more harm than good. Pls Trump don't lift this Ban, in fact let it cut across every Nigerian , let this push us to work on fixing our failed country. Nonsense.

FYI I am just like you,born into this country with nothing,and in the midst of the unfortunate events that our country is characterized with I tried and I made something out of myself and it didn’t take me a year or two it took me a long time,and I didn’t run away in those trying period because I understand what patriotism his and the fact that we have trillionaires in this country that shows it is possible to make it even if the odds are not favorable.

Only in Nigeria people like you think it is only when you work and earn money makes life easier. Change your ideology. Nigeria is not the best place to stay if you want a rest of mind. Am not talkin about whatever you have achieved as bad as this country is. Take it or leave it, you still have people who cannot afford 3 square meals in your immediate/extended family which will never happen in a sane country. If you love those people, you will think of them each time you replenish your kitchen store.

Let me tell you. recently in my area, our landlord chairman got robbed successfully at 3am without any security enforcement. Now tell me what is the essence of your struggles when you cannot sleep with your two eyes in your comfort zone.

If the size of my bank account worth billions in Nigeria im still not comfortable to leave here. People are dying of hunger, robbery everywhere, kidnappers across the country, ritualist,gov corruption etc.

That just about sums of what I said about you,you lack patriotism and you should be ashamed of yourself,people who have this type of attitude in other countries are treated like outcast,if you can not be proud of your country and fight for it then what kind of a man are you.
If everyone thinks like you and run away,who will fix and improve the country,like I said the problem with you people is that you always want it easy and you’re not ready to work for anything.
Re: Geoffrey Onyeama: US May Lift Travel Ban In One Month by SmartKitty: 1:07am On Feb 08
I would believe if it was the American Government saying. Nigerian government may wish but don't decide the American visas policy.

In your previous quote, i lacked patriotism and now i lacked home training. My brother we need not to fight but tell ourselves the truth and stop pretending as if things are going well.

If you want to understand me clearly, let America open their border to only Nigerians without Visa and see what will happen. Infact i wont be surprise to see you as the first person to troop in.

We all love this country but. X
