The former lawmaker expressed his satisfaction with this new development, while he also urged the President to go all out and extend it to people of African origin outside Africa.

I commend President @MBuhari for his visa free policy to all citizens of African Union member nations. I first suggested this in my Right of Return Bill. I urge the President to go the whole hog and extend this to all people of Black African origin in the Diaspora.
