Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has reacted to the visa ban the United States slammed on some Nigerians involved in election rigging and violence. He called on them to publish the names of those involved
On Monday, the US government sanctioned Nigerians found to have undermined the November 2019 governorship polls in Bayelsa and Kogi States.
The UK has also warned that names of sponsors of violence in Edo and Ondo States will be added to the existing blacklist.
In a statement on Thursday by Paulinus Nsirim, Commissioner for Information, Wike commended the countries for their actions.
“They should go ahead and publish their names so that a lot of things will change in our electoral process.
“Election rigging is worse than armed robbery. So whatever sanctions that can be imposed will be highly welcomed by the PDP, he said.
