Nigeria to Review U.S. Travel Ban Issues As Officials Meet in DC

In a bid for "productive relations" between Nigeria and the United States, President Muhammadu Buhari says that he has appointed a minister to lead a committee to study and address new U.S. visa requirements. The U.S. placed Nigeria and five other countries on temporary travel restrictions over security matters. Three days after the Trump administration announcement, senior officials from both countries convened in Washington for the annual U.S.-Nigeria Binational Commission.
