The re-approval was made known by Hadi Sirika, the Minister of Aviation, in an announcement stating that airline had removed some of its traveling conditions for Nigeria. In his words;
“Today, we received communications from Emirates removing some of the conditions for travelling for which we had concerns,”
Having done that, it is necessary to lift the ban on Emirates – he said
This subsequent lifting of the ban is a product of lengthy negotiations between us and them.
