NIDCOM hails Tinubu’s intervention in UAE visa ban

Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, NIDCOM, has applauded the swift intervention of President Bola Tinubu with the leadership of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) which resulted in the lifting of visa ban on Nigerians.

Chairman/CEO of the Commission, Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, in a statement signed by the Head of Media and Public Relations, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, said with this landmark unique diplomatic achievement, Nigerians working in the UAE, who could not have their work permits renewed, can now heave a sigh of relief.

The NIDCOM boss said this intervention will usher in a new era of collaboration and friendship between the two nations – Nigeria and the United Arab Emirates.

She said besides the lifting of the ban and resumption of flights into Nigeria, the bilateral parley also laid a robust foundation for substantial investments in various sectors in Nigeria.

The NIDCOM Chairman, who said she has been bombarded with calls from excited Nigerians living in the UAE, urged them to continue to be good ambassadors of the country.

Diplomatic row broke out between the two countries over a year ago due to some unresolved differences which had brought untold hardship to Nigerians travelling, as well as those living in UAE.
