Niger Innis: Travel Ban Created 'Nigerian Miracle'

By    |   Friday, 17 Oct 2014 01:44 PM

As the country is debating whether or not the U.S. government should impose a travel ban on passengers traveling from Ebola stricken countries, conservative commentator Niger Innis says it has been practically a miracle in Nigeria.

"There's some bad decisions that are coming from [President] Barack Obama," Innis told John Bachman on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV Friday.

"For example, why no travel ban?" he asked. "It is a no brainer that we should have travel bans."

"I'm going to call it the Nigerian miracle," he said. "Nigeria's the largest African country by population. It is also in that region of Liberia and Sierra Leone where there have been 4,500 deaths."

However, Innis explained, "in Nigeria, because they have had tight border security, because they've had travel bans, there have only been 20 deaths in this huge African country."

The spokesperson for the Congress of Racial Equality contends that the reason Nigeria was able to enforce a travel ban and the United States isn't is because of "a little thing called racial political correctness."

"If this disease was not born in West Africa but was born in Bosnia or born in the Ukraine, I guarantee you, there would have been travel bans," Innis added.

Liberal columnist Ellis Henican told Newsmax that "Ebola is one of half a dozen nagging, difficult to solve, frustrating, kind of novel problems that the world is dealing with."

He contends that "all of this is much bigger than the United States of America or its Congress and president."
