Nigerian Elite, Politicians May Be Banned From Traveling To U.S., Europe From Tomorrow
A report has emerged that the United States of America and European countries may with effect from tomorrow, January 15, stop issuance of visas to prominent Nigerian elite and politicians.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Akwa Ibom State, Dr. Mike Igini, who said this while speaking with Nigerian Guardian on Sunday, January 13, added that the ban would remain in place until after the elections.
His words: “I have been calling on various countries. First I have been advising Nigerians that they should not make election a violent thing.
“We should not destroy our country because you think that you have U.S., UK visa and visas of other European countries where you can run to with your family.”
Igini had made similar call during an exclusive interaction with party chairmen and secretaries in the state last Friday.
“My call is that, having called on Nigerians to reject violence and those who are planning it, I also think the international community should be involved. Nigeria cannot be in autarchy of best practices, you have the capacity to identify those who are planning violence across the federation.”
The REC further stated that the threat to the 2019 elections are the elite of Nigeria, and the political class who are recruiting thugs, and pilling up money to buy votes.
“They are even more sophisticated now, they have hired some houses, collecting peoples Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs), VIN numbers, telephone numbers and are also now collecting their account numbers,” he said.
He disclosed that INEC has been receiving the report about these elite and politicians, including their importation of military camouflage and fake police uniforms.
