The United State embassy in Abuja has denied reports that the United States’ Government has placed a Visa restriction on the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and some commissioners of the electoral body.

A source at the embassy told reporters in Abuja on Thursday, 22nd August 2019, that that news is false as none of such directive has been given.

“The US government refuses to be drawn into any attempt to malign the INEC over the 2019 elections as issues arising from the election are still in court,” the source said.

The source also confirmed that quite a number of INEC ‘s Commissioners we’re recently granted Visas to the US.

Sources within INEC also told our reporter that the report was not true and hinted that it could have been planted to embarrass the Commission.

“This is a lie. We don’t understand why people will go this length to spread false information,” the source said

The source said confirmed that INEC Commissioner Amina Zakary who was mentioned in the blog post as banned from entering the US just returned from the US a few days ago while Commissioner Lecky is right now in the US on official duties.
