The Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC) has commended the US for imposing visa ban on election offenders in Nigeria.

In turn, CISLAC urged the United Kingdom and other European countries to follow the US steps and take the same action by imposing a visa ban on election offenders.

CISLAC made this known in a speech by The Executive Director, Auwal Musa, who made this commendation known in a Wednesday statement.

He said that this action would restore fairness, credibility and transparency to Nigeria’s electoral process.

Musa described it as the restoration of eroding democratic principles and core values.

He condemned unchecked violence, vote-buying and ballot looting during elections.

“CISLAC expresses total support to the new policy, which has validated the years of persistent demands by civil society, human rights and anti-corruption activists for stringent international measures to discourage electoral violence and fraud that undermine democratic principles in Nigeria.”

“We are not unaware of the lack of political will at all levels of government to address electoral violence, in spite of the existence of laws and reports from several panels and commissions, with recommendations,” Musa added for CISLAC.
