There was a time when Nigerians used to be respected all over the world. But after 419 and several drug related incidents, Nigeria fell into the zone. The zone where customs officers look at you funny the minute you flash out a green passport, The zone where flight attendants attitude changes as soon as the plane starts heading to Nigeria, The zone where you get looked at twice in immigration, not because you are sexy, but because your face looks Nigerian. Its crazy!
Can you believe that I was stopped twice (arrival and departure) at Houston George Bush International airport this year because I did not have a transit visa to allow me enter and depart Canada. I had a valid H1-B work visa but yet they carried me into their special interrogation room…I was like crap…I went to the University of Houston for 5 years, worked and paid taxes in Houston for another 5 years but yet I still get treated in Houston like I am some Alien…not like immigration Alien…MIB3 type alien with fish scales from another planet outside the Milkyway….sent to destroy planet Earth!
Sometimes I just want to scream “I COME IN PEACE.”
