President Muhammadu Buhari says his government is making progress to reverse the United States suspension of the issuance of “immigrant visas” to Nigerian passport holders.

A statement issued on Thursday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, quoted Buhari as saying this while receiving the report of the committee on Citizen Data Management and Harmonisation headed by the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola.

In the the statement titled, ‘Nigeria making progress to reverse US visa restrictions’ Presiden Buhari expressed delight that the Aregbesola-led committee has addressed two out of the six areas of concern that led to the US temporary visa restrictions on Nigerians.

“I also note the progress made by Nigeria towards the removal of the visa restrictions as two out of the six areas of concern raised by the United States had been fully addressed, two are substantially satisfied while some progress is being made on the remaining two.

“I am delighted that this progress, especially the uploading of lost and stolen passport and travel documents has been acknowledged by the United States government.”

KanyiDaily recalled on February 1, 2020, the US government had imposed visa restrictions on Nigerians and citizens of three other countries in a bid to prevent permanent residence in America. However, the immigrants could still apply for other visa categories such as business, tourism, and student travel.
