Foremost Rights Activist, Comrade Deji Adeyanju has accused President Mohammadu Buhari of being responsible for the visa ban imposed on Nigerians by the United States Government.
Adeyanju stated this over the weekend as reactions continue to follow the inclusion of Nigeria by the Donald Trump’s government on counties with temporary visa freeze.
Apart from Nigeria, countries such as Eritrea, Sudan, Tanzania, Kyrgyzstan and Myanmar have been blocked from obtaining certain types of visas.
But people from those countries will still be able to visit the US as tourists.
But Adeyanju, a fiery speaker who has been drawing the Buhari’s government attention to its many ills said, “The imposition of Visa Ban on Nigeria by the United States was caused by Human Rights violations of the Buhari regime since 2015.
“We warned and warned but instead of respecting the rights of citizens, the regime arrested, imprisoned and even hired thugs to beat us up.”
He ended the message with a hashtag. “#Tyranny.”
Daily Mail reports that in 2018, the US issued twice as many immigration visas to Nigeria than to the other five nations combined.
An official said the new measures were the result of failures by the six countries to meet US security and information-sharing standards.
“These countries, for the most part, want to be helpful but for a variety of different reasons simply failed to meet those minimum requirements that we laid out,” acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf told reporters on Friday.
