Let them ban us, no problem. If the great grandparents of the United States citizens ran away from their country, America won't be great today.

We die here!

I understand what you're trying to say, but you do realize that a large number of USA grandparents ran away from their own homes in Europe.

So is it that you couldn't also read that those countries you mentioned, I mean India, China, Mexico and even UK, were part of those also banned from participating in the lottery program.
Everybody is just reacting without looking at the facts. So did UK, China et al also have bad governance to warrant being prohibited as well? I think the US have been explicit enough about their reasons. There is no basis to ascribe it to something else.

I can now see why many people fail comprehension tests.

Please I have a question to ask.
My Dad is an American citizen and my elder sisters (4) are all in America. If paradventure I wanna apply for US Visa,can I get to be a citizen straight up sequel to the fact my dad and sisters are all American citizens?

I would suggest you start the process . Trump is trying to change the process. Before Trump your family could file for u to come over. Trump's administration is moving towards a more merit based system. They're no longer giving preferential treatment to those with family in America.

It is not only Nigeria that has reached the 50.000 visa lottery of USA, from the article other countries as well too has reached the mark, they can apply based on conditions known to them but Nigeria hell no.
Let me also remind you that they're countries particularly the Asians, some part of America has severely defaulted immigration rules and regulations than Nigeria and African countries put together, yet most African countries are targeted of visa ban because they are certain conditions to it.

Beniné Republic close to Nigeria is top 5 best African passport and visa to travel with but Nigeria zero.

it's about bad governance because if things were ok here, Nigeria won't have been reaching the green card quota consistently over the last 15 to 20 years. Evil government back to back to back is the problem, including Buhari regime

wink I get your point, that's not up to 10% of their population. Ours is already getting out of hand, we can't keep running from these old men forever. Mind you, most of them fled due to war, famine etc such as the Prussian war which largely dispersed the present day Germans, names like Fitzgerald, Schwarzmuller etc that claim to be Americans are the result of the Prussian war.

Are we at war in Nigeria? Why are we running?

Most of the countries that were not eligible previous years are not included. Apart from our leaders, the way our youths behave too might be affecting us. 1 out of 10 Nigerians abroad involve in one or more shady businesses. Everybody wants to get rich overnight.



I pulled the information below from travel.state.gov website

In Africa, natives of Nigeria are not eligible for this year’s Diversity Visa program.


For DV-2022, persons born in the following countries are not eligible to apply, because more than
50,000 natives of these countries immigrated to the United States in the previous five years:
Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China (including Hong Kong SAR), Colombia, Dominican
Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan,
Philippines, South Korea, United Kingdom (except Northern Ireland) and its dependent
territories, and Vietnam.
