President Muhammadu Buhari has directed Immigration Service at points of entry into the country to stop the payment of fines y Nigerians holding dual citizenship at the nation’s International Airports with immediate effect.
In a statement issued by the Ministry of Interior by the Permanent Secretary, Mohammed Umar, the directive was in line with government resolve to make movement easy for Nigerians with dual citizenship to come into their fatherland unhindered.

“As a new government policy, on no account should any Nigerian traveller holding dual citizenship pay fine for so-called overstay,” the statement noted.
Under the new policy, “citizens with dual nationality should only present both travelling documents of their countries of nationality to the immigration officials upon arrival and departure, regardless of whichever they are using to travel”.
The Immigration Service has been directed to ensure immediate compliance with the new government directives as the government would sanction any Immigration official found collecting such fines henceforth.
Nigerians with dual citizenship have been asked to report any Immigration official who imposed such charges on them to the appropriate authorities.
