FG to tackle issues that led to U.S. visa ban : Presidency

The Nigerian government has created a committee to address the issues that led to a suspension of U.S. immigrant visas to its citizens, the president’s office said on Saturday.
Nigeria was among six countries, four of them in Africa, added to a visa ban announced on Friday in a presidential proclamation.
U.S. officials said the countries failed to meet U.S. security and information-sharing standards, which necessitated the new restrictions.
“Nigeria remains committed to maintaining productive relations with the United States and other international allies especially on matters of global security,” the statement said.
Nigeria, the most populous nation in Africa, is the biggest country on the list whose citizens will be suspended from U.S. visas that can lead to permanent residency. The list also includes Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan and Myanmar.
