United State imposed visa restrictions on some Nigerians

Before the 2019 general elections in Nigeria, the news came that United State will impose visa restrictions on politicians who may cause a problem during the election.

Today, Morgan Ortagus, the Department of State spokesperson announced that the U.S has imposed visa ban on some Nigerians “believed to have undermined the democratic process throughout Nigeria’s 2019 elections. “

On the official Twitter account of the U.S Department of State, the official announcement was made there also and the official document containing the restrictions and the reason for it was uploaded there. On the official document from the U.S Department of State, it states that, “the Secretary of State is imposing visa restrictions on Nigerians believed to be responsible for, or complicit in, undermining democracy in Nigeria.  These individuals have operated with impunity at the expense of the Nigerian people and undermined democratic principles and human rights.

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. “

This confirms the belief by many Nigerians that the elections were not free and fair.

The names of those affected with the  U.S visa ban on Nigeria politicians were not released to the public. Below is the tweet from the official Twitter account of the U.S Department of State and that of  Morgan, the spokesperson of the department:
