Website: Official Scholarship Website: https://www.aauw.org/resources/programs/fellowships-grants/current-opportunities/international/ UAE-Dubai bans /stop visa issuance to Nigerians. Set to deport thousands of Nigerians back. What really happened?

Listen. The bulk of our stolen wealth end up in Dubai. Most of our rich and powerful all have houses and duplexes in Dubai. Our big boutiques buy from Dubai, most men take their wives and children to Dubai for school, our top politicians and even First Lady make Dubai their second home, our top civil servants, perm secs, ministers, business men all have accounts and assets in Dubai. Our rich and powerful use Dubai for super extravagant weddings, parties, and reunions.

To be frank, Dubai should be grateful and thankful to Nigeria. We are among the countries that made Dubai what she is today.

We abandoned developing our own Dubai in Nigeria. We abandoned Tinapa, Obudu Ranch, Jos, and several other towns, we abandoned our own and opted for Dubai and South Africa and we are treated as common criminals.  Today Dubai says “ park and go”. We exported our wealth and also our criminality and refused to fix our own country.

Recently Ethiopia started visa restrictions to Nigeria and stopped visa on arrival, South Africa making visa entries difficult for Nigerians, we exported our wealth, real estate, businesses and criminality to Ghana, soon Ghana may think of restricting our visits.

Our governments have destroyed our own universities, but send their kids to Ghana’s  best schools. From Dubai to Ghana to Ethiopia, to South Africa and one day to Cotonou, Chad and Niger, they will continue to kick us out until we decide to look inwards and fix our own country.

Let us spend our dollars in Nigeria, Nigeria shall be great again. Enough of this global rejection and visa restrictions. It is time we have a development plan and build our own Dubai in Nigeria.
