US gives Nigeria conditions for review of visa ban policy

The United States government has given the Nigerian government conditions under which the recent visa policy affecting six countries, including Nigeria, could be reviewed.

The US government maintained that once Nigeria improves her data intelligence, such that it would be easy to investigate any immigrant wishing to visit the United States and meet information-sharing systems, the ban might likely be reviewed.

The  US Ambassador to Nigeria, Her Excellency, Mary Beth Leonard, restated this Tuesday when she paid a courtesy visit to the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, at the ministry’s headquarters, Abuja.

Recall that the US recently announced that it was extending visa restrictions to six more countries, including Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation.

Mrs Leonard explained that the immigration policy does not affect people currently resident in the US.
