    America didn’t say Nigeria should woo with investment for America
    America states that Nigeria is a risky country to allow in their Country by giving them access to permanent residency

  3. A concerned Nigerian says:

    The major issue that is at hand is not about Nigeria trying to impress or engage America by increasing the amount of business dealings with both countries. The major reason from the White House press release is given below;

    (e) Nigeria

    (i) Nigeria does not comply with the established identity-management and information-sharing criteria assessed by the performance metrics. Nigeria does not adequately share public-safety and terrorism-related information, which is necessary for the protection of the national security and public safety of the United States. Nigeria also presents a high risk, relative to other countries in the world, of terrorist travel to the United States. Nigeria is an important strategic partner in the global fight against terrorism, and the United States continues to engage with Nigeria on these and other issues. The Department of State has provided significant assistance to Nigeria as it modernizes its border management capabilities, and the Government of Nigeria recognizes the importance of improving its information sharing with the United States. Nevertheless, these investments have not yet resulted in sufficient improvements in Nigeria’s information sharing with the United States for border and immigration screening and vetting.

    (ii) The entry into the United States of nationals of Nigeria as immigrants, except as Special Immigrants whose eligibility is based on having provided assistance to the United States Government, is hereby suspended.

    That being said, the solution to Nigeria being taken off the US Travel Ban list is to comply with America’s Information sharing and Identity management standards, and work with them in order to lift the ban. Is it not new news that Nigerian population in America have one of the highest frequencies in Visa Violation and Overstaying their visas. Therefore the Nigerian government has to consider that fact, and improve their identity management standards and work with the US in order to reduce the rate at which Nigerian citizens violate their visas in order for the Ban to be lifted. Instead of trying to sweet talk the American government with business deals and investment talks, they should address the main issue at hand and work collaboratively with the US government in upping our immigration and foreign standards. I believe that without the major issue being looked into, no matter the amount of business deals made with America, President Donald Trump would not take off the Ban placed on Nigeria except there is sufficient evidence that the standards of information sharing and Identity management has being met.
