Group operating under the aegis of Arewa Consultative Youths Movement (ACYM) has commended the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) under the leadership of Dr Godwin Emefiele for its efforts to support foreign airlines.

In a statement by its President, Kabiru Yusuf, the group said with the efforts being put in place by the CBN to encourage foreign airlines, the decision of the United Arab Emirate to place a visa ban on Nigerians because of Emirate Airline is unfair.

“We commend the CBN for its efforts in supporting foreign airlines.

“We note the statement credited to the Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele, that the United Arab Emirates is threatening visa ban due to the funds of airlines trapped in Nigeria.

“This is despite the fact that the CBN released $110 million to the foreign airlines in August and is due to release another $120 million on 31st of October.

“The CBN Governor said Nigeria has over the years prioritized the foreign airlines in allocation of Fx, adding that instead of bearing with the country, some countries are threatening to ban Nigerians.

“It is our position that the UAE visa ban threat is unfair.

“We therefore called on UAE authorities to rescind the decision and allow peace to reign”, the statement read.
