Have you seen foreign journalist covering any good thing in Africa, or saying anything good in Africa, I think is high time the leave Africans alone since they can nt see any good thing in Africa.

Most of them are not journalists. We know what we are doing? Don't come in and polarise already broken relationship we are struggling to galvanise. How did he get his, if Nigeria is denying foreign journalists entry in the country to cover election. phyuk OFF

Wow. Immigration refusing journalists visa entry into Nigeria.

I suppose immigration is just being "free and fair?"

Denying Journalists Visa is not appropriate if they have the required documents to cover election campaign and the election itself.. But the truth is most of this journalists don't have necessary documents to enter into our territory, Their are reporters without border, Are you sure most of this Journalists protesting are one of them, Or they just want to come and pollute our beloved country with their trash, I say NO to any journalist coming to Nigeria without proper documents, I say NO to journalist coming to Nigeria to pollute our beloved land, I say NO to the recognized dumping of unwanted trash in our land...
