Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani reacted as the United States imposed visa sanctions on some Nigerian politicians.
Sani, however, notes that the visa restriction would help Nigeria ensure credible and transparent elections.
Recall that the US had yesterday imposed a Visa Ban on some politicians involved in rigging the last Bayelsa and Kogi governorship elections.
Morgan Ortagus, the spokesperson for the Department of State announced the sanction in a statement.
However, the former lawmaker stressed that Nigeria’s failure to implement genuine electoral reforms led to foreign sanctions.
Sani said: “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.”
