President Tinubu Resolves Visa Ban and Forges Historic Agreement with UAE Across Multiple Sectors


President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and UAE President Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan have concluded a momentous accord, leading to the immediate lifting of the visa ban on Nigerian travelers. Moreover, as part of this significant agreement, both Etihad Airlines and Emirates Airlines will promptly recommence their flight operations to and from Nigeria without any additional delays.

According to a statement released by Chief Ajuri Ngelale, the Special Adviser to the President on Media & Publicity, it was clarified that the swift reinstatement of flight services between the two countries through these airlines, as agreed upon by the Heads of State, does not require any immediate payment from the Nigerian government.

Furthermore, President Tinubu is delighted to announce the successful negotiation of a joint foreign exchange liquidity program between the two governments. Detailed information about this program will be unveiled in the coming weeks.

In closing, the President expresses his appreciation to UAE President Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan for his unwavering friendship and resolute commitment to elevating and normalizing relations between these two significant nations to a state of excellence.
