Former national of All Progressive Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, and three governors on elected on the ruling party have been constrained from traveling to the United States US.
The governors under the US Visa ban list include Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state and Yahaya Bello of Kogi state.
The reason for the politicians being put to shame by the US might be due to the roles they are playing ahead of the forthcoming Edo State governorship election.
This was disclosed in a statement issued on Monday by a spokesperson for the Department of State, Morgan Ortagus, said those issued visa bans received the sanction for undermining democracy in Nigeria
The statement read: “In July 2019, we announced the imposition of visa restrictions on Nigerians who undermined the February and March 2019 elections.
“Today, the Secretary of State is imposing additional visa restrictions on individuals for their actions surrounding the November 2019 Kogi and Bayelsa states elections and in the run up to the September and October 2020 Edo and Ondo states elections.
“These individuals have so far operated with impunity at the expense of the Nigerian people and have undermined democratic principles.
“The Department of State emphasises that the actions announced today are specific to certain individuals and not directed at the Nigerian people.
“This decision reflects the Department of State’s commitment to working with the Nigerian Government to realise its expressed commitment to end corruption and strengthen democracy, accountability, and respect for human rights.”
