Nigeria was included on the US Visa ban list last week alongside Eritrea, Myanmar, Tanzania, Sudan, and Kyrgyzstan.

According to the US, Nigeria did not comply with it’s security and information sharing standards.

The report read: “Nigeria also presents a high risk, relative to other countries in the world, of terrorist travel to the United States. Nigeria is an important strategic partner in the global fight against terrorism, and the United States continues to engage with Nigeria on these and other issues.”

“The Department of State has provided significant assistance to Nigeria as it modernises its border management capabilities, and the Government of Nigeria recognises the importance of improving its information sharing with the United States.

“Nevertheless, these investments have not yet resulted in sufficient improvements in Nigeria’s information sharing with the United States for border and immigration screening and vetting.”

    Surely the Federal Government did miss an opportunity given by the US due to their lack of cooperation. That may be true but then let’s not put all the blame on the Federal Government since they are already acting on the demands of the US.
