Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser, Media, and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, has stated Nigerians in the United States of America were responsible for the country to be on the watchlist.

He disclosed this while speaking in an interview on Channels Television’s breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily, revealing that the US secretary said that adding Nigeria to the watchlist was not based on facts.

Adesina, “The secretary said putting Nigeria on the watchlist was not based on facts, and you know that Nigerians themselves going to America to feed them with incorrect positions about what is happening in Nigeria. And that was why Nigeria was put on that watchlist.

“But when America discovered that it was not based on facts, Nigeria was removed. It is a very good development for us.”

Recall that recently the United States of America removed Nigeria from the watchlist of countries violating religious freedom.
