The newly sworn-in president of the United States of America, Joe Biden, has begun to deliver on campaign promises as he canceled Trump’s travel ban on Nigeria and other countries.
Biden began his first day in office by reversing some actions of former President Donald Trump, as he implemented new policies on the COVID-19 pandemic, immigration, and climate change.

The 46th American president canceled the ban which restricted travel to America from mostly Muslim nations.
The countries are Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen, Chad, North Korea, Venezuela, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, Nigeria, Sudan, and Tanzania.
At the Oval Office’s Resolute Desk, Biden rolled out 15 orders and two other action items.
Biden has made mask wearing in all federal buildings and during interstate travel mandatory.
“It’s requiring, as I said all along, where I have authority, mandating masks be worn, social distancing be kept on federal property,” he told reporters.
He also signed orders for America to formally rejoin the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Paris climate agreement.
