In an advisory note obtained from the social media handle of the USA mission in Nigeria, officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission and political actors in the Saturday November 6th 2021 ANAMBRA State gubernatorial poll have been warned that they won’t be granted Visa to travel to USA should they be linked to Electoral heist or violence.

The statement reads as follows: “The United States looks forward to a gubernatorial election in Anambra State on November 6 that is peaceful and transparent, with results that accurately reflect the will of the state’s residents. We will be paying close attention to actions of individuals who interfere with the democratic process or instigate violence against civilian populations before, during, or after the elections. We will not hesitate to consider consequences – including visa restrictions – for those found to be responsible for election-related violence or undermining the democratic process. Under U.S. immigration law, certain violations also may lead to restrictions on family members. We call on citizens, electoral officials, party members, and security force personnel to do their part in ensuring a credible and secure electoral process.”
