President Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday night, arrived Abuja, after his participation at the UK-Africa Investment Summit.
As he arrived in Abuja, Buhari waved to supporters, perhaps not giving too much attention to reports that the United States of America, USA, President Donald Trump, would be slamming Nigeria with visa restrictions anytime soon.
Buhari who promised to kill corruption before it kills Nigeria, returned home the same day Transparency International scored his anti-corruption fight 26 over 100, and ranked Nigeria 146th out 180 countries surveyed in its Corruption Perceptions Index, CPI, for 2019.
President Donald Trump, on Wednesday, confirmed that he would be extending travel bans on additional countries.
“Our country has to be safe”, Mr. Trump said at a News Conference, at the World Economic Forum, in Davos.
President Trump is expected to issue the Executive Order on the travel ban, on Monday.
He is planning to place travel ban on Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country, as well as Sudan, Tanzania, and Eritrea. Other countries to be affected are the Asian nations of Kyrgyzstan and Myanmar, as well as the European country of Belarus.
The planned visa restriction, may be interpreted as an indictment of the Buhari administration’s failure to defeat boko haram, respect human rights, and protect the rights of Christians and other citizens.
