U.S. Travel Ban On Nigeria, They Should Have A Rethink— Lai Mohammed

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, says on Monday in London during an interview session with Reuters News Agency that plan by the U.S. to add Nigeria to its existing list of visa travel ban countries is ill conceived.

According to Lai Mohammed “On the issue of the travel ban our position is that it is still speculative because we are yet to be communicated. When we are communicated we will respond comprehensively.

“However, in our view it was not well thought out but based largely on negative narratives spread by naysayers.

“I know that we are working very well with our neighbours to ensure that terrorism is addressed. We are working with international community including the EU and the U.S.

“Our advice to the U.S. is that it should have a rethink on the issue because any travel ban is bound to affect investment and growth in the country and those who will be affected are the most vulnerable people in Nigeria”

On the closure of border Lai Mohammed  said

“Not only that they are sabotaging the economy of the country but also the security of the nation was being threatened.

“Under the guise of smuggling rice, a lot of small arms and light weapons are being smuggled into the country”
