Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. John Campbell, stated: "The goal of the consular section is to facilitate travel between Nigeria and the U.S. –to encourage Nigerians to work, to seek business opportunities, to study in and to visit the U.S. for whatever their own private purposes, and then return home to share their experiences and to help build their own country."
