Illegal migration: We may impose tough visa rules on Nigeria, EU warns

• Union declares Nigerians among top 10 illegal immigrants in Europe

• Nigerian criminal networks active, says EU, demands solution

Eniola Akinkuotu and Olaleye Aluko
The European Union says it can impose restrictive visa implementation rules on Nigeria, if it fails to play its part in the return and readmission of its nationals staying illegally in the EU.
The EU, which comprises Germany, Italy, Spain, France and 23 other countries, further stated that although it would not place a visa ban on Nigeria, it could make its visas more difficult for Nigerian applicants if Nigeria failed to meet its standards.
The EU Spokesperson for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Ms Virginie Battu-Henriksson, said this in an email chat with The PUNCH on Tuesday.
Recall that the United States had last month imposed immigrant visa ban on Nigeria and five other countries.
Under the new policy, citizens of the affected countries would not be allowed to apply for visas to emigrate to the US under the policy   aimed at tightening “security for countries that don’t comply with the US minimum security standards or cooperate to prevent illegal immigration.”
According to the Department of Homeland Security, Nigeria presents a high risk, relative to other countries in the world, of terrorist travel to the US.
The US further stated that Nigeria did not adequately share public-safety and terrorism-related information, which is necessary for the protection of the national security and public safety of the US.
Following the US action, the Federal Government set up a committee headed by the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, to ensure that Nigeria meets requirements the US said were not in place.
On February 5, the committee met with the US Consular General in Abuja with a view to addressing issues raised in the visa ban.
On Tuesday, the US Ambassador to Nigeria, Ms Mary Lenoard, explained that the visa ban was not permanent, adding that it was subject to review if certain conditions were met.
But while Nigeria is struggling with the US visa ban, the EU said it could impose restrictive visa implementation rules on it.
Nigerians among top 10 nationals illegally staying in EU
When asked if the EU had challenges Nigeria was trying to resolve with the US, Battu-Henriksson said Nigerians still placed among the top 10 nationalities detected as staying irregularly in the EU even though the number of Nigerians travelling irregularly to the EU had dropped.

tShe said Nigerian criminal networks remained active in the EU.
The EU spokesperson said, “Nigerians still place among the top 10 nationalities detected as staying irregularly on the EU territory, although the number of Nigerians entering the EU irregularly declined drastically last year.
Nigerian criminal networks remain active in EU
“Nigerian criminal networks remain active in Europe, and Nigeria remains the main non-EU country of origin for victims of trafficking (mainly women) registered in the EU.”
When asked if the EU would be giving Nigeria the “American treatment”, she said Nigeria could face a restriction if certain criteria were not met.
Battu-Henriksson stated that if Nigeria did not play its part in the readmission of its citizens living illegally in the EU, then strict measures could be put in place.
She said what the EU could do if Nigeria failed to meet its criteria was to adapt the rules on processing short-stay visa applications.
The EU spokesperson stated, “What the EU can do since new rules on short-stay visas to the EU became applicable on 2 February 2020, is to adapt the rules on processing short-stay visa applications, depending on whether a non-EU country cooperates satisfactorily on the return and readmission of their nationals staying irregularly in the EU.
“Under the new rules, the EU Commission will regularly assess the level of cooperation of non-EU countries on the readmission of irregular migrants. If the level of cooperation is insufficient, the commission, together with member states, can decide on a temporary more restrictive implementation of certain provisions of the visa code.
“This could have an impact on the processing time, the length of validity of the visa to be issued, the level of the visa fee to be charged and the fee waivers. It is important to note that this mechanism does not amount to a visa ban and does not call into question the right to submit an application for a visa or to be granted a visa. It only allows for a more restrictive implementation of some of the visa rules. This concerns short-stay visas to the Schengen area, covering stays of up to 90 days in any 180-day period.”
Battu-Henriksson recalled that in 2016, an EU Council decision authorised the opening of negotiations on readmission agreement with Nigeria – making it only the second country in West Africa with which the EU was negotiating such a formal agreement.
The readmission agreement seeks to ensure that Nigerians travelling to the EU take only the legal routes.
It also seeks to ensure that Nigeria is able to readmit its citizens living illegally in the EU.
“It is in our common interest to work on dissuading migrants to take dangerous irregular routes to Europe and risk exploitation. Returns and readmission are part of working on this common endeavour,” she said.
The EU spokesperson said Nigeria remained a partner in the fight against terrorism and human trafficking.
Battu-Henriksson said the EU was also supporting the multinational joint task force in its fight against Boko Haram and had donated 55 million euros to the African peace facility.
Nigeria’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that it had not received any official notice from the EU that it was considering Nigeria for visa restriction rules.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Spokesperson, Ferdinand Nwonye, stated this in an interview with one of  our correspondents on Wednesday, while reacting to whether the EU was considering Nigeria for a visa restriction.
He said, “We had European Union-Nigeria dialogue on Tuesday and the matter was not brought up. It was not brought up at all.
“Be that as it may, it has not come to us officially. And you know definitely that anybody who has a visa and the visa expired based on the conditions of the issuance, the person is expected to come back or renew his stay there

Inauguration speech by Michael Markus Kutte Adamawa state University SUG President


The Acting Vice Chancellor, Registrar, Dean of Students’ Affair, Various Deans of Faculties, HODs, ASUU representative, Nasu Representative, SSANU representative, my fellow Comrades in the struggle and ADSUsites.

We observe today not for my victory but a celebration of ADSUsites desire for a positive change-symbolizing an end as well as a beginning-signifying renewal as well as positive impact. It trills me with great sense of enthusiasm and penchant humility to stand here today by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our comrades; for I have sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our forebears prescribed more than a decades of our Student’s Union ago.

The Ag. Vice Chancellor, my fellow students, permit me to start by expressing my innate and profound gratitude and appreciation to God Almighty for His Grace, favour and Mercy to which we are able to record this success   May I use this medium this medium to commend my rugged and indefatigable co-contestants, co-runners, my political ally: Comr. Matthias M. Karma (Fada), Comr. Yusuf Abba Gulak (Repo) and Sen. Amos Adega for their immense contribution during the struggle to ensure that our union is brought back as a true representation of students despite our differences. I must applaud and confess that am challenged by my three opponents who contested the presidency of the Student Union with me. It was indeed a notable fight. I so much respect and admire their strength and courage. I wish to say that we have all come out victorious as our democratic battle has redefined the union in a greater way.

I will be unfair not to appreciate the great Nigerian Students on our campus for their patience and endurance during the electoral process; you are our motivation and the backbone of the Students Union Government. I also express my sincere appreciation to everyone who has contributed to the success of my campaign [TEAM MKAY], though too numerous to mention. I will remain ungrateful if I don't commend Comr. Joshua Peter (Traveller), I sincerely appreciate your sacrifice, assistance, structure and co-operation which aided my emergence, history will not forget you as a hero of our time.

Essentially, the same revolutionary belief and challenges for which our forebears fought with and against are still issues around us today-the belief that without Students, no lecturers and definitely no School Management, that Students must be treated right and their perspectives must be adequately listen to by management in formulation and implementation of any policy since they are at the receiving ends of any policies made. However, doing this shouldn't be perceive as a matter of generosity of the School Authority but an absolute necessity for the attainment of tranquility and in achieving the vision and mission of the founding fathers of this institutions which we still hold as sacred till today.

We are conversant with the myriads of issues, conditions and ample challenges confronting ADSUsites like the issue of mass failure, accommodation quagmire, unstandardized medical clinic, lacuna in communication, unhealthy environment, weak security-students relationship, high price of goods and services within the campus, lack of Union’s mobility and permanent secretariat just to mention but a few. The trumpet of these challenges summons us again to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation as we utilize all the 2Cs of struggle; consultation, and consolidation to the fullest and if needs be, to utilize the last C- confrontation. We will never, never and never negotiate or dialogue out of fear and intimidation and when we negotiate or dialogue, we hope all parties will respect the rules of dialogue/negotiation.

As many of us are aware, the Student Union Government (SUG), Adamawa State University, Mubi is not new to having its leaders come up with a number of visions and policies year after year. The Student Union Government (SUG) administrative structure is not in good shape and has been weak and inoperative and needs reconsideration by successive administrations long before now.

I come to you this day, with a proclaim message of hope, a clear agenda of prosperity and vision in student Unionism. I vehemently believe the greatest expression of faith is in our ability to be strong enough to look upon our imperfections and decide that, it is in our power to remake our Union to align with the highest ideals.  There is need to introduce workable administrative structure capable of yielding tangible results and speed in delivering answers to the quest of electorates.  Fellow ADSUsites, in your hands, more than mine, will rest the final success or failure of our course. I as an individual have decided before now to that ensure your betterment as your president, safeguard the Union’s constitution and keep to my presidential Oath.
Do not forget that the success of the MKAY-led administration is your success and for that matter, the success of ADSU MUBI. Yes greatness is coming so let’s all embrace it wholeheartedly for love of God and our country. This administration holds aloft the transformational pledge of promising less but delivering more.

My fellow ADSUsites, let us endeavor to comply with the School Regulations and behave ourselves since we are intellectuals, to avoid giving ourselves out cheaply while we lose focus in achieving our aims and objectives as Students Union. Shun Cultism, shun examination malpractices, shun sexual harassment and indecent dressing, shun threatening of lecturers, securities and bully of fellow students

More essentially, I solicit for the full support of the School Authority starting from the office of Dean of Students Affair to the Vice Chancellor, the School Senate and Governing Council, my fellow union in the struggle (ASUU, NASU, SSANU) and also full corporation of my fellow ADSUsites in ensuring that this administration indeed lay the foundation for a responsible, responsive and intellectually-oriented students' union that won't be a bane of development rather a partner for socio-economic, dynamic, academic and political development. This administration will be committed to the safety of lives and properties of our Students and Staffs in this community and will put to use all due process to achieving applaudable security situation in our university community.

Conclusively, let me loud and applaud the leadership style and achievement of my immediate predecessors under the leadership of Comr. Paul Adamu Soma for their selfless service thus far to unionism on this campus. As the saying goes, “uneasy lies the head that wears the crown” we promise to improve on all thier efforts and ensure the survival and betterment of the union in all ramifications.

It begins here, today and now.
Lets join hands and work as a team toward making SUG ADSU great again.
I believe in TEAM ... Together Everybody Achieves More.
Service is the key, Michael Markus Kutte (Mkay) is the Servant.

It's better with Mkay!

God in your hands, I commit my destiny!

Thank you.

Long live Students' Union Government!
Long live Adamawa State University, Mubi!
Long live Adamawa State!
Long live Federal Republic of Nigeria!

Aluta Continua! Victoria ascerta!
E soleto! E Africa!

War threat: Iran speaks on nuclear weapon deal with UN

Iran, on Monday said it has not closed the `door to negotiations’ in efforts to resolve a dispute over its nuclear agreement with world powers.
It said that the dispute had escalated steadily since the United States withdrew from the deal in 2018.
Foreign Ministry spokesman, Abbas Mousavi, said any further move by Tehran to scale back its commitments to the deal would depend on actions by other parties, after European states triggered a mechanism that could lead to the re-imposition of U.N. sanctions, Reuters reports.
Iran has gradually stepped back from its obligations to the 2015 deal, under which Tehran secured sanctions relief in return for limiting its nuclear work, after Washington quit the agreement and then imposed stringent U.S. sanctions.
Britain, France and Germany, also signatories to the pact, triggered a dispute mechanism in January, citing Iranian violations.
This starts a diplomatic process that could lead to U.N. sanctions being re-imposed.
Mousavi told a weekly news conference in Tehran, that the `door to negotiations’ had not been closed.
“Tehran still remains in the deal. The European powers’ claims about Iran violating the deal are unfounded.
“Whether Iran will further decrease its nuclear commitments will depend on other parties and whether Iran’s interests are secured under the deal.’’
U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew from the deal and began a policy of “maximum pressure’ on Iran, saying he wanted a new deal that would cover nuclear issues, Iran’s ballistic missile program and Iranian activities in the Middle East.
Britain has said a `Trump deal’ could replace the 2015 agreement and France has called for broad talks to end a crisis with the United States, which briefly erupted into tit-for-tat U.S.-Iranian military action in January.
Mousavi repeated Iran’s rejection of a `Trump deal’ saying Iranian officials have said Trump could not be trusted, so such deal would not have any value.

Top 10 Cars You Can Buy With One Million Naira in Nigeria (Photos)

Are you interested in buying a functional but cheap car that falls below the one million naira mark?

You can stop racking your brain as to where to find such cars as we have a list of 10 cars that offer you a wide variety of options for your budget.
Below are the top 10 cars in Nigeria that you can buy with one million Naira or less:

1. Hyundai Sonata

The Sonata is the Camry of the Hyundai brand. It is one of the most successful car models in the Hyundai stables.
It is a midsized family car and has no pretensions to being sporty. However, you can’t deny its sleek appearance.
A locally used 2000-2005 Sonata car sells for below N1 million.

2. Mercedes Benz C200 2000/2001

The Mercedes Benz line has established itself as the King of automobiles that people hardly expect to find an affordable Benz in the market.
The car has been tagged elitist because of its strength, agility and durability. If you want a car that does not compromise its goal of luxury or performance, go for the Benz.
Whether your preference is an SUV, a saloon car, a coupe, a crossover, a bus or a truck, the Mercedes Benz has you covered.
A Mercedes Benz C200 2005 can be bought for between N800,000 and N1,000,000 as a foreign used (Tokunbo) car.

3. 2003 Toyota Corolla

The Corolla has always shown signs that it is destined for great things. Since its introduction in 1966, to when it became a bestseller in 1974, down to this day, different models have left car lovers holding their breath.
The Japanese brand stormed Nigeria with the Corolla and it has been a hit back-to-back in the country. You don’t want to try counting it on the road as you’re bound to lose count.
A locally used 2003 Toyota Corolla can be found for between N900,000 and N1 million.

4. 1997 – 2001 Toyota Camry

It is hard to discuss the Corolla and not mention the Camry, its twin-wonder of the car world.
It is a loaded car; it combines efficiency, durability, style and fuel economy and can withstand tough road terrains.
More recent models have shown a unique ruggedness, terrific handling, and durability. A foreign used 1997-2001 model can be bought for between N500,000 and N800,000.

5. Golf 3

If the Volkswagen automobile got anything right with Nigeria, it is the Golf series. The Volkswagen Golf Mk3 or the rechristened name in Nigeria, Golf 3, is a surprisingly small-sized but portable family car.
The third in the line of Golf series and all the versions of this model come in a standard height of 4,074mm.
The story of how the Gulf 3 took over Nigeria some years back is a tale for another day. A locally used Golf 3 can be bought for between N400,000 and N700,000.

6. Peugeot 307 (2003)

The Peugeot brand is built around three core values: allure, excellence and emotion. This car has a history in Nigeria.
Its reliability has kept it in the heart of the Nigerian military as their favourite brand of car.
The Peugeot 307 was manufactured in 2001 as a small family car. It is quite affordable, comes with superior handling and built on low fuel consumption.
Production on this model stopped in 2014 so it is difficult to get a brand new one. The locally used Peugeot 307 2003 can be bought for between N700,000 and N950,000.

7. Nissan X Trail 2004

The Nissan brand has been a dark horse for too long in the Nigerian car market.
Despite its burst of inventiveness and creativity, things haven’t seemed to click yet for the brand in Nigeria the way things clicked for brands like Toyota, Honda, Mercedes Benz and Peugeot.
However, the brand has continued on the path of adding spectacular designs to its automobile collection. A Nissan X Trail 2004 (Nigerian used) can be bought for below N1 million.

8. 2001 Toyota Sienna

The Toyota Sienna has been a favourite in the Nigerian market since its introduction in 1997. It’s flexible, rugged and functional at the same time.
It just happens that this is the kind of car Nigerians like for the road. A locally used 2005 Toyota Sienna can be bought for about N1 million.

9. Golf 4

This car has its own magic and look. Its styling is simple but no less unique. On safety, the car ranks high.
On handling, the car provides an incredible driving experience. A locally used Golf 5 can be bought for between N450,000 and N800,000.

10. Nissan Xterra 2002

This is a compact SUV from the incredible Nissan brand. This five-door SUV was introduced in 1999.
A locally used Nissan Xterra 2002 can be found for between N500,000 and N900,000.

Final Thoughts on Cars You Can Buy With One Million Naira in Nigeria

The cars on this list that fall within the budget of N1 million are locally used cars as the foreign used versions are usually slightly more expensive.
Also, before you buy a car that sells for N1 million or below, you need to ensure you subject the car to thorough inspection by a mechanic you trust.
Have a look at cars currently listed for one million in Nigeria.
