US govt imposes visa ban on some Nigerians who undermined the 2023 elections

Those who attempted to interfere in the 2023 elections are now prohibited from entering the United States.

On Monday, May 15, 2023, Linda Ikeji Blog Official broke the news.

Almost a year after promising to crack down on anyone advocating violence while voters cast their ballots for president, the United States has finally done so.

The United States has taken note of those who attempted to disrupt the electoral process on February 25, according to a statement sent by Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Monday via his official Twitter page.

In an article he published, he stated, "Today, I am announcing that we have taken steps to impose visa restrictions on specific individuals in Nigeria for undermining the democratic process during Nigeria's 2023 elections cycle."

The US government, however, has not publicly disclosed the names of people involved.

Blinken stated that President Joe Biden's government is dedicated to promoting democracy in Nigeria and elsewhere.
