0

The U.S. State Department on Tuesday, announced that it had imposed visa restriction on Nigerian politicians found culpable in sabotaging the 2019 election.

No name was passed off in the announcement, however Nigerian politicians affected by the visa restriction imposition are those indicted for electoral violence, rigging and other anti-democratic activities before, during and after the 2019 elections.

“These individuals have operated with impunity at the expense of the Nigerian people and undermined democratic principles and human rights,” spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said in a statement.

“The Department of State emphasizes that the actions announced today are specific to certain individuals and not directed at the Nigerian people or the newly elected government,” Ortagus added.
