According to Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has achieved in under 100 days what the Muhammadu Buhari administration was unable to accomplish for many years.

Former President Buhari was in office when the United Arab Emirates, or UAE, and Nigeria engaged in a diplomatic dispute that led to the imposition of a visa restriction on Nigerians and the suspension of flights to the west African country.

Since October 2022, the situation has not changed.

However, the presidency had announced on Monday that Tinubu and the leader of the United Arab Emirates, Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, had reached a historic agreement in Abu Dhabi, which had led to the immediate lifting of the visa requirement for people from Nigeria.

He said : “In the last few days our President has placed Nigeria back at the center-stage of international affairs where she rightly belongs.

“After a fantastic outing in India at the G20 summit which has attracted billions of dollars in investment to our country and where he rightly told world leaders that they cannot do without Nigeria, he went to the UAE and not only ensured that the visa ban on Nigerians was lifted but also ensured a resolution to the trapped Emirati funds at Central Bank and the issue of flight routes and air travel between our two countries. All these achievements in a matter of a few days.

“These are things that the previous administration could not achieve in years of protracted and oftentimes acrimonious negotiations.

“I am truly proud of our President and, under his watch, Nigeria is clearly on the rise again.

“Not only has he restored our confidence and hope but he has also proved to the world that Great Nigeria, the Giant of Africa, has come alive again. Glory be to God.”
