The Federal Government of Nigeria berated the United Kingdom and United States of America over their travel advisories in October 2022.
The government said more than three months after their embassies warned nationals against movement/presence in Abuja, their city remained safe.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed made this statement in Abuja at the 25th edition of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s (PMB) Scorecard Series.
Mohammed recalled how the advisories created panic and tension in the country, causing some foreigners to leave the nation’s capital.
The minister said residents of Abuja had been going about their activities, commending security agencies for their efforts.
Mohammed hailed the military, the police, the intelligence agencies and others for their commitment and sacrifice.
“We also call on Nigerians to continue to support the security agencies as they carry out their onerous task,” he said, warning Western countries to stop frivolous advisories.
