We’re in talks with US over plans to deport Nigerian foreign students – FG
The Federal Government says it in chats with significant specialists over plans by the United States government’s arrangement to strip Nigerian and other global undergraduates of their US visas and remove them if their courses go completely online as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The move will influence a great many Nigerians who establish 33% of African understudies who ventured out to the US to go to colleges or take an interest in preparing programs, just as non-scholastic or professional investigations. The Director, Press and Public Relations, Ministry of Education, Bem Ben Goong, said the government is attempting to confirm the authenticity of the arrangement before reacting to it as a nation.
He said; “If the report about the US is true, I think there would be very little any government can do about it.
He said: “We are in touch with the United States authorities to get the validity of that information. On social media today, anything can happen. I would also like you to bear in mind that if that policy is true, it does not only affect Nigerian students, it will affect every student studying in the US.
“That Nigerian student will come home is not a big deal, the big deal is if they will be able to study successfully and get their results and the certificates they need to get? If the answer is yes, there not much anyone can do about it. We will verify that and put up our appropriate response”
