KanyiDaily recalls that last Monday, the United States government had imposed visa ban on some Nigerians, who undermined the country’s democracy by involving in election rigging.

On Saturday, Governor Godwin Obaseki of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was re-elected after defeating Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Reacting to the election, Nnamdi Kanu said the fear of visa ban is one of the factors responsible for the credible election in Edo.

“Here is Mary Beth Leonard, the courageous US Ambassador to Nigeria that delivered the first truly free and fair elections in the history of Nigeria in Edo State, something the EU and UK have failed to do for over 60 years.

“This amazing woman imposed ordinary visa ban on perennial election riggers and they quickly behaved themselves. Add a bit of Nyesom Wike and the tenacity of Igodomigodo and you have the perfect result,” Kanu said in a statement issued by Emma Powerful.

Meanwhile, the APC has congratulated Obaseki over his victory, noting that the peaceful conduct of Edo election and its outcome represents a victory for Nigeria’s democracy.
