The Minister of Interior, Abba Moro has said the Federal Government granted visa to a renowned extremist and Islamic terror Preacher, Dr Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips because he met the requirements.

Philips who lives in Qatar has been issued a Nigerian Visa to visit and preach in the Country.

The cleric has already been banned from countries like Australia, Germany, United Kingdom, United States of America, Kenya, amongst others.

Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips has been banned from a number of countries because of his messages.

Reports had it that the cleric celebrated his Visa issuance with his followers on his Facebook on Sunday morning, saying, “Al hamdu lillaah. I just got a visa for Nigeria and will be going there in a few days, in shaa allaah. So, I hope to see all my Nigerian brothers and sisters. Baarakallaahu feekum”.

Speaking to journalists in Abuja, the Minister of Interrior noted that every country has its own requirement for the grant visa and in Nigeria’s situation especially against “the back drop of our security challenges, we also have our requirement for granting of visas.

“We have our own black list too of people that because of our security situation should not be allowed into country.

“And if this preacher that you talk about for instance did not fall within the list of people black listed for their activities that are inimical to internal security. If he is preaching and the content of what he has submitted for the granting of visa that will not undermine the security of the country, then certainly we will grant him the visa. That is the purpose we have achieved here”.

He further said it was double standards, as “when the Nigerian government signed the anti-law and the west was complaining, we started that Nigeria nation is a soverign country that should be allowed to determine it’s destiny and practices”.

He added that Nigeria will therefore not use” the refusal of visa by Germany, UK as a basis for refusing anybody visa here.

“I can assure you that the nigerian security personnel are equal to the task of detecting whose activities that are inimical to the situation of this country.

“Any moment that his preaching and activities are seen to be inimical to the security of this country I can assure you that we are up to the task of repatriating him as soon as possible.

“And his specific activities in this country guides the request that he has made which has also guided the action of the Nigerian immigration service in granting the visa.

“Apart from the preacher any other person that gains entry to this country whose activities undermine the integrity and security of this country will be properly treated.”

  1. This is a wrong move especially at this time. This man is hate preacher and countries that love their stability and safety of its citizens have denied this man a visa. Why does Nigeria keep acting foolish? How long will we continue to self destruct? The visa should be revoked immediately and the interior minister fired for this lapse in judgment

  2. Are we serious in this country? The man has been noted for preaching terror and he was granted a Nigeria visa. Isn’t the boko haram situation in the country not enough to deny someone like that a visa? Is it until he starts preaching terror before we act? (or not act which is usually the case). This is a huge slap across The face of Nigerians and whoever gave that man a visa should be sacked from his or her job.

  3. You are talking absolute nonsense. You have heard of his history and you are telling me about security personnel being up to the task. they are up to the task and all the killings are going on. I think we have comedians as representatives in almost all political positions in this country.
