President Muhammadu Buhari has waded into the diplomatic situation between Nigeria and the United Arab Emirates, which led to a visa ban on Nigerians wishing to travel to the Middle Eastern nation.

The Emirate authorities last October slammed a blanket visa ban on Nigerian travellers, excluding those carrying diplomatic passports.

Though the United Arab Emirates did not specify its reason for the decision, some adduced the blanket visa ban on the misbehaviour of some Nigerians living or working in that country.

However, during a telephone conversation, President Buhari spoke to his United Arab Emirates counterpart, Sheikh Mohamed Al Nahyan, on lifting the ban.

Buhari recalled that mutually beneficial relations have subsisted between the two nations.
