US Visa Restriction Will Boost Development And Investment In Nigeria - Alhaja Sinatu Ojikutu 3

Former Lagos State Deputy Governor, Alhaja Sinatu Ojikutu has commended the president of United States, Donald Trump, for extending his visa restriction policy to Nigeria.

KanyiDaily had reported that President Trump is planning to add seven countries to its travel ban list in order to restricts the flow of immigrants and visitors into the US.

The affected countries included Nigeria, Sudan, Tanzania and Eritrea from Africa while Kyrgyzstan and Belarus from Eastern Europe and Myanmar from Asia.

Reacting to the US visa restriction, Ojikutu said Nigerians would now learn to sit at home to develop and invest in their country rather than junketing around the world, searching for greener pastures.

Ojituku stated this on Tuesday at a town hall meeting organised by Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) in collaboration with UKAid to “sensitise and encourage citizens to participate in and embrace the war against corruption”.

“Nigeria is a great country; we have no other place to go to. I have lived in England, lived in America. Those are the greatest nations but I was a stranger there. When I come to Nigeria, I’m a queen; I’m a princess. So, we should build our country such that people will love to stay here and not exit,” she said.

“If we don’t build our country, we are in trouble and it’s getting to that. And I’m very happy with this President Trump on one issue; this issue of stay back home and make your home homely. Why are you coming to where we have made homely?

“And then, you not only come to where we have made homely, you also come to spoil it for us. The kind of things we buy in their shops, they always wonder where we get that kind of money from. Now, Trump is telling you, whatever you have stolen use it in your country.”

She equally commended the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, for “blocking all the channels through which people use to steal public funds.”

Ojikutu said that to end corruption in Nigeria, “the fight must start from the homes where parents negatively influence their children who then grow to hold public offices.

“We must start from the source; from the mother and the father, who need to make ends meet and are doing things that are not right in the presence of their children. These are the children who become policemen, judges, governors, legislators because right from home, they were shown that nothing is wrong in stealing,” she noted.
