The United State embassy in Abuja has denied reports that the US 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 who didn’t want to be mentioned told Vanguard that that news is false as none of such directive has been given.
The source said, “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 also confirmed that quite a number of INEC's Commissioners we’re recently granted Visas to the US.

The Source might have inappropriately named the USA, instead of Dubai, as the Country that has restricted visa facility to Mammood and other 2019 INEC Officials.
