Diplomatic sources confirmed that the USA government had discussions with Abuja for two years over passport control, issuance and security around immigration.
Six months ago, it told our diplomats in US that it was going to ban us, we did nothing!
There are reports within diplomatic circle that terrorists who enter Nigeria from Mali through northern Nigeria are issued Nigerian passports that they use to fly to Yemen and elsewhere for terrorism training.
The Buhari free-visa passes at our airport which attracts Terrorist and Waring Fulanis across Africa, I’m told, tipped the balance against us.
Buhari must stop the admission of terrorists into Nigeria and try to share immigration and terrorism information with the US to ensure the lifting of this ban.
