The United States of America’s decision to impose a visa ban on some Nigerians who threaten democracy has invited a reaction from the Federal Government of Nigeria.
The country’s Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, stated on Monday in Abuja at the 20th edition of President Muhammadu Buhari’s (PMB) Administration Scorecard Series (2015-2023) that any measures taken against anyone who undermines the democracy of the nation are appropriate and justified.
“Let me be clear, whatever action is taken against anyone who undermines this democracy that has been watered by the blood of many of our patriots is right and justified. For us as a government,” he said.
Lai Mohammed said that since Nigeria’s return to democracy in 1999, no administration has been more committed to the democratic process than the Buhari administration.
The ministry asserts that President Muhammadu Buhari has been the most straightforward regarding leaving office after the legally required two terms since 1999, both in words and deeds.
Roughly two weeks after the British government vowed to impose a visa ban on Nigerian politicians engaged in violence and rigging.
