Shehu Sani applauds Tinubu’s initiative to resolve the Dubai visa ban issue


Former Kaduna Central Senator, Senator Shehu Sani, expressed his support on Monday for President Bola Tinubu’s efforts to lift the Dubai visa ban imposed on Nigeria by the United Arab Emirates.

The UAE immigration authorities had announced the visa ban in October 2022, with no given reason, only stating that all applications were on hold pending resolution of issues between the UAE and Nigerian governments.

Sani welcomed Tinubu’s actions but advised the Federal Government to also address the criminal activities within the country to improve the effectiveness of its efforts.

He acknowledged the Federal Government’s efforts to engage with the UAE Government to lift the visa ban but emphasized the need to tackle the actions of unscrupulous individuals within Nigeria.

Sani stressed that responsible countries would not tolerate actions that tarnish their reputation or undermine their hard-earned progress.

He called for the identification and blacklisting of individuals involved in violent crimes, drug trafficking, or racketeering by the Nigerian Immigration Service, emphasizing the importance of self-improvement within the nation.
