The federal government has vowed to slam the retaliation method on any country that delay visa issuance to Nigerians without cogent reasons.
This was outcome of a meeting held yesterday by top government officials.
In attendance were Interior Minister, Lt.-Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau (rtd), Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyeama, Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami and Comptroller-General of Immigration, Mohammed Babandede.
Dambazau said that the delay in the issuance of visa to Nigerians was becoming an embarrassment and must be resolved.
“It is embarrassing that one will want visa and will have unnecessary delay from the issuance countries.
“We as a country needs to take our stand; we should deal with any country the way they deal with us on visa issuance.
