Nigeria, US meet over visa ban


The Federal Government and the United States are presently holding a meeting on the visa ban on some categories of Nigerians.

The meeting, which is ongoing at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is expected to provide the country with the opportunity to brief the US government on steps taken so far to resolve the issues.

The Nigerian delegation is headed by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mustapha Sulaiman, while the American side is headed by the US Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Leonard.

Also in attendance is the Comptroller-General of Immigration, Muhammad Babandede, and senior officials from relevant ministries, departments and agencies.

US President Donald Trump had in February added Nigeria to the list of countries whose citizens will be restricted from processing some US Visas.
