Atiku urges Biden to lift travel ban as he congratulates the 46th US President

A former Vice President of Nigeria and presidential aspirant, Atiku Abubakar, has called on the newly inaugurated President of America, Joe Biden  to lift the ban placed on Nigerians by his predecessor, Donald Trump.

Atiku made the call in congratulatory message to President Biden. He said, “I also look forward to the removal of every travel restriction on Nigerian citizens, in keeping with the good relations that has existed between our two nations, beginning with the July 27, 1961 state visit of our first Prime Minister, Alhaji Tafawa Balewa, to President John F Kennedy, and continuing over the decades since then.”

He said as Joe Biden begins his tenure as the 46th President of the United States of America, he is confident that the new era will mark America’s regeneration and her reaffirmation as the beacon of democracy to the world.

He said, “As the playwright, George Bernard Shaw once said, America and Nigeria are two nations divided by a common language. And millions of Nigerians and I wish to see that relationship sustained to the mutual benefit of both our democratic nations.
“Congratulations once again and may God bless both our nations and bring about a beneficial tenure for your administration.”
