The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the meeting between the vice-president and Ndume lasted for over an hour.

The United States said Thursday it would no longer issue temporary visitor visas to pregnant women seeking to enter the country for so-called “birth tourism”.

In announcing the rule change, which takes effect Friday, the White House said foreigners were using the visas “to secure automatic and permanent American citizenship for their children by giving birth on American soil”.
