Former Education Minister, Oby Ezekwesili has reacted to the inclusion of Nigeria in the list of countries on the US travel ban list.
Recall that on Friday, the United States added six countries to the list of nations facing stringent travel restrictions.
Nigeria joins three other African countries on the list, which includes; Eritrea, Sudan and Tanzania. The latest addition takes the total number of countries now on the restricted travel list to 13.
Reacting to the development, Ezekwesili described it as an infuriating act.
See her tweet below:
Seeing one’s country on that unfortunate US Immigration Ban List is infuriating.
But like I already stated, Nations determine how the World perceives, respects and values their citizens.
It is in our hands.
Our problem is here at home.
We Fix it…..then We face the World.
