- The Nigerian government says it is waiting for the formal announcement of the proposed travel ban on the country by the United States
 - Garba Shehu, Buhari's spokesperson, says the government's reaction would come when the US carries out the plan
 - Tanko Yakassai, an elder statesman, wants the Nigerian government to fight back The reported plan by the United States government to slam a travel ban on Nigeria and some other countries is still speculative and does not require a reaction yet, the presidency has said. Garba Shehu, spokesperson to President Muhammadu Buhari, noted that though the Nigerian authorities are aware of the report that Nigeria is listed among the country to face such sanction, it would not say anything until it becomes formal.

Apart from Nigeria, other countries listed are Belarus, Myanmar, Sudan, Eritrea, Tanzania and Kyrgyzstan Daily Sun quoted Shehu as saying the presidency read about the plan by Donald Trump's government. 

Again, Magu decries UK’s refusal to extradite Allison-Madueke He said: "We are not going to react to speculations. We urge you to wait for us to see what unfolds under the new policy, its scope, its reach, the implications and its consequences before we react." However, Afenifere has alleged that the activities of Boko Haram and killer herdsmen are responsible for the decision of the US to include Nigeria in the list of countries whose citizens would be restricted from getting its visa. The report said while Yinka Odumakin of Afenifere, Yoruba's socio-political organisation, attributes the proposed to insecurity in the country, an elder statesman, Tanko Yakassai, wants the Nigerian government to retaliate if it happens.
 Yakassai expressed shock at the plan adding that the US is yet to issue any explanations for the proposed action.  He said even though Nigeria is a developing country and as such has limitations, its government can also begin to examine areas where it can retaliate.

However, they could have restrictions placed on specific types of visas, such as business or visitor visas.
