The Presidency has explained that the cases of most of those affected by the travel ban on fifty prominent Nigerians started before the present administration.

 

Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, GARBA SHEHU, explained this to newsmen following the criticism that trailed his Saturday announcement of the travel ban.

 

SHEHU explained that the high profile cases have been ongoing for between seven to ten years with no end in sight.
