Written by on November 14, 2023

Nyesom Wike has received the United Arab Emirates Ambassador to Nigeria, Salem Al-Shamsi, at his office in Abuja.

During the meeting, Wike said he was concerned over the visa ban on Nigerians and hoped that the UAE government would expedite the restriction lift to enable Nigerians to travel to the country.

This is as he commended the tourism attraction the city had been able to garner over the years and hoped that Nigeria would emulate that example.

The minister further says the relationship between both countries was important to foster national development and promised that the Federal Government would explore more ways to partner with the UAE to ensure economic growth in Nigeria.

Mr. Al-Shamsi however says his country was working hard to resolve the issues.
