SHEHU SPEAKS ON U.S. VISA BAN TO FOR ELECTION SABOTEURS
Shehu Sani said that other nations should do same thing the U.S. did in discouraging bad elements in the nation’s polity – The former member of the Senate added that the national laws are not enough in curbing political frauds.
Shehu Sani has reacted to the recent US visa restrictions that was placed on Nigerian politicians, saying it is a welcome development.
Sani made his thought on the ban known via his twitter handle on Wednesday, July 24, where he asked other nations of the world to follow US footstep.
He added that national laws on people trying to undermine any country’s democracy are not enough.
Sani tweeted: Recall that Legit.ng earlier reported that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party for the February 23 poll, Atiku Abubakar, said the visa restriction placed on Nigerian politicians believed to have been responsible for undermining democracy in Nigeria by the US State Department validated his claims that the general elections were rigged.

The former vice president said how long lies stay, it must eventually be overtaken by truth, as he called on Nigerians not to despair, expressing hope that there would be relief soon. “After the conduct of the February 23, 2019 Nigerian presidential elections, we maintained that the polls were rigged, not credible and that former Vice President Atiku Abubakar won the elections and that his mandate was stolen…”
