In a meeting aimed at improving businesses in the country, the Minister of Interior, Mr Abdulrahman Dambazau has condemned the delay in issuing of Visas to Nigerians from other Countries.

The Minister said that the pointless delay in issuing of Visa from the issuance countries to Nigerians is really embarrassing. He also said that Nigeria will in turn start dealing with any country that delays in issuing visa to her citizen.
Adding that: “It is embarrassing that one will want visa and will have an unnecessary delay from the issuance countries.”
He also said that; “We as a country need to take our stand; we should deal with any country the way they deal with us on visa issuance. They should not think that we need them more than they need us.”

Also, the Comptroller-General of Immigration, Mohammed Babandede, on the same issue, noted that Nigeria is ever ready to do business normally with other countries. However, he supported the reaction from Mr Dambazau. Also, Babandede reaffirms that Nigeria will also do the same to any country that delays visa for Nigerians.

Babandede said: “What we are saying is that we as a country, we would also like to retaliate. Anybody who delays visa for our nationals, we would also do the same as a country. Because we have a pride as a nation.”
