Shehu Sani Reacts As US Impose Visa Ban On Nigerian Politicians



The former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central senatorial district, Shehu Sani, has reacted as the United States, imposed visa sanction on some Nigerian politicians.

Sani in his reaction noted that the visa restriction would help Nigeria ensure credible and transparent elections.

Naija News had earlier reported that US on Monday imposed a visa ban on some politicians involved in rigging the last Bayelsa and Kogi governorship elections.

The spokesperson for the Department of State, Morgan Ortagus, disclosed this in a statement.

However, the former lawmaker stressed that Nigeria’s failure to implement genuine electoral reforms led to foreign sanction.

In a tweet, Sani wrote: “The US visa restrictions imposed on election riggers will help in the nation’s quest for transparent and credible elections by tackling impunity.”

“Failure to implement genuine electoral reforms led us to foreign remedy.”
