The U.S. Embassy in Abuja and the Consulate General in Lagos will remain open during the U.S. government shutdown caused by disagreement between Trump and his lawmakers. This includes the Consular Sections.

Previous reports on the subject have been clarified. 

The Embassy corrected the information in a Facebook post saying that only the American centers would be closed. 

The American centres include the libraries and other sections.

It said that those who had business or appointments with the Embassy should continue as scheduled. 

The statement read:

“US Embassy Abuja and Consulate General Lagos remain open for all consular business, including visa interviews. Please attend your regularly scheduled interview.”

The US Government shutdown stemmed from the disagreement between the President, Donald Trump and the Legislature who do not see eye to eye about the funding of a wall to be built between Mexico and America. 

The wall has been Trump’s plan since his campaign and has now requested the Legislature to provide $5 billion for its building when Mexico refused to pay for it.

The shutdown began on the 22nd if December and is expected to last a few weeks.
