Exiled leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has attributed the credible conduct of Saturday’s gubernatorial election in Edo State to threat of Visa Ban on riggers by the U.S government.
In a statement on Monday by IPOB ‘s Spokesman, Emma Powerful, Kanu lauded the U.S Government, said the threat influenced the positive outcome of the election added with Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike’s tough stance.
“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.
