The Prime Minister of Qatar, Sheikh Abdullah Al-Thani, has promised to look into the visa restriction placed on Nigerian and ensure that it is resolved within the shortest time possible.
He made this promise while hosting the President of Nigerian Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki, who was in Doha as the leader of the Nigerian National Assembly delegation to the 140th General Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union holding in Doha.
The Nigerian Senate President had, during the meeting with the Prime Minister, lamented that the visa ban was negatively affecting Nigerians because it had prevented them from visiting the Middle East nation.
Though no specific date was given for actualizing the review of the visa ban, it is hoped that Sheikh Abdullah Al-Thani, the Qatari Prime Minister who is also in charge of the country’s interior ministry, will make good on his promise.
