The Chief executive of connected development, Hamzat Lawal has reacted towards the statement made by the United States secretary of the state, Anthony Blinken about the visa ban on those who scuttled the election in Nigeria.
Speaking in London during an interview with a Channels Television correspondent in Abuja, Lawal beckoned on the United States to reveal those persons whom they said partook in scuttling and deliberately disrupting the elections that took place in Nigeria.
He said it was necessary for them to publish the names of these said individuals, stressing that it will also help Nigerians put and Inaugurate those set of people in the 'hall of shame'
Lawal who made this statement pointed out that it is a shameful thing, adding that such was necessary to ensure that they understand that there are consequences for actions like that.
He said..."It will send a signal that there are consequences to all these actions, and I think they owe it to the Nigerian people who are their friend and partners. Some of these people who interfered with our election should have been prosecuted or even brought behind bars by the Nigerian police, but this is a right step by the US government, and I think in due time, they should publish these names, because we should know, so that we Inaugurate them in the hall of shame"
Recall that the United States had finally pointed out that they have set aside visa ban for those who deliberately disrupted the Nigerian election.
