Nigerian author and activist, Reno Omokri, has shared his opinion on the United States of America’s ban on Nigeria.
According to reports, the ban was placed on Nigeria (among the six banned African countries) after it failed to meet up to the minimum standard for US security and information-sharing.
Omokri stated on Twitter that he does not condemn Donald Trump's decision to place the ban on Nigeria following the incidents that have occurred under this administration.
"I wish the US did not place Nigeria on the Travel Ban list, but put yourself in Trump's shoes. Under this administration, Nigeria has released thousands of 'repentant' Boko Haram members, any of whom could apply for and get a US visa and wreak havoc. They watch as this government unleashed operation Python Dance on the Southeast, Operation Crocodile Smile on the SouthSouth and Southwest, while they treat herdsmen with kid gloves. Any of those herdsmen can apply for and obtain a US visa and export their marauding activities to America. Let us be logical, not sentimental. Don’t blame Trump. Blame General Buhari. In fact, blame yourself for electing him!"
