Nigeria plans to enter into an air services agreement with Trinidad and Tobago in the near future that will facilitate direct flights to and from the two countries, African media have reported.
Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan, who was on a State visit earlier this week to Trinidad and Tobago, made the disclosure while assuring that the issue of Nigerians being required to pay a bond as a pre-condition for obtaining visas to the country will be tackled diplomatically at the level of the bilateral talks between him and Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar, news website allAfrica.com reported yesterday.
President Jonathan, who was dressed in an all-black suit Niger Delta attire with matching hat and an ornate gold chain, assured this to the Nigerian community in Trinidad on Tuesday night, that his administration would address all challenges and ensure that existing relations between the two countries were strengthened for the benefit of their citizens.
He was accompanied by his wife, Patience, who wore a cream gold outfit with silver embellishment, at the Hyatt Regency (Trinidad) hotel in Port of Spain during an Emancipation celebration.
They also asked that Nigerians being held for close to three years in detention camp over immigration issues should either be deported or tried.
