U.S. Shutdown Closes US Embassy in Nigeria

The US Embassy locations in Abuja and Lagos have temporarily closed. Reason? The partial U.S. Government shutdown.

The United States’ Embassy in Nigeria has temporarily closed its consular section in Lagos and the capital city, Abuja.

In a statement published on the U.S. embassy Facebook page on Monday, the closure was as a result of the government shutdown in the U.S.

The U.S. embassy, in its statement, also apologised to Nigerians for any inconveniences the shutdown may have caused, stating that once the issues get resolved, the consulates would be reopened.

“Due to the current US government shutdown, the American centres located in the embassy, Abuja, and Consulate-General, Lagos are unfortunately closed. They will reopen once the US government shutdown is resolved. Sorry for any inconvenience to our valued patrons,” the statement reads.
