Activities pick up at US embassy Abuja

Activities picked up on Friday at the US Embassy in Abuja as it resumed consular activities.
The embassy on its twitter handle, @USEmbassyAbuja, announced resumption of full consular services at the embassy in Abuja, saying: “Full consular visa and American Citizen Services (ACS) resume in Abuja today.
“We regret the inconvenience the temporary closure of the Abuja Consular office caused.
Good to be back,” the embassy said.
The embassy had on August 15, temporarily, suspended its consular services in Abuja due to reasons it said were beyond its control.
It had, however, stated that consular functions at the US Consulate Lagos were never affected and will continue as usual.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) observed that scores of applicants who had their appointments rescheduled for August 24 after the suspension of services defiled the Friday downpour to meet up with their appointments.
Many of them were sighted on a queue at the embassy waiting to be attended to by consular officials.
Few of them who spoke with NAN said that they initially had appointments between August 15 and August 23, but were informed that their appointments had been rescheduled to August 24, while others said their appointments were fresh.
