While sharing on his official Twitter page, he said:
"Visa sanctions is the best step in tackling public officials involved in Human Rights abuses or rigging elections. It's wrong for the US to deny Nigeria the sale of weapons crucial to the prosecution of the war against terrorism. Terrorism anywhere is terrorism everywhere".
