Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, SAN has said the Visa restrictions slammed on election riggers in the country played a pivotal role in determining the winner of Edo State election.
Recall that, the United States of America last week slammed Visa restriction on some politicians in Nigeria whom they accused of undermining democracy in the country through their actions in the 2019 elections. This according to some political pundits striked so much fear across the board in the county.
According to Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, “Edo Election was determined by the US, EU and the western powers. As simple as that. Whoever they favour will always carry the day”.
So it was in 2015 so it is now.
“Our leaders are scared to be placed under visa restrictions, where they may not be able to access their loot and have opportunity for good medical treatment”.
This is what has led to peace in Edo.
“If America and the Western powers want it, election in Nigeria will always be free”.
“Secondly, whether we agree or not, President Buhari has also shown himself to be a good leader, in allowing the will of the people to prevail”.
“Above it all, we salute the courage of the Edo electorate, very enlightened and vigilant”.
