The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday commended the United States for its fresh imposition of visa ban on perpetrators of election fraud in the country.
The PDP in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja, urged the US Department of State to include family members and assets of such anti-democratic agents who had destroyed the credibility of Nigeria’s electoral process.
The party also implored the US to invite the European Union as well as other nations, particularly the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Saudi Arabia, to impose similar sanctions on electoral violators, who were bent on destroying Nigeria’s democracy.
The statement read: “The PDP further demands an extension of the ban to families as well as confiscation of assets of such individuals.
“This is to serve as stronger deterrent to protect innocent Nigerians who are left to bear the brunt of the misdeed of such unpatriotic persons.”
