Shehu Sani reacts as Buhari’s govt tells US to deny Atiku visa

By - - [ ]

The Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has reacted to a statement credited to the Federal Government, informing the US to be cautious in granting visa to the PDP Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, had during an interactive session with media executives in Abuja on Thursday said while the U.S. has the prerogative of whom to issue visa, it should be mindful of the timing, in order not to give the impression that Atiku has been endorsed by the U.S. government.

He was quoted as saying, “We understand and appreciate the fact that it is the prerogative of the U.S. to grant a visa to anyone who applies.

“However, we want the U.S. to be neutral and be wary of taking any decision that will give the impression that they are favouring or endorsing one candidate over the other

“Impression must not be created that the U.S. government is endorsing one particular candidate over the other.”

But, reacting, Shehu Sani described the advice as ‘unpatriotic and condemnable.

He tweeted, ”Telling a foreign country not to grant visa to your fellow citizen on the ground that he is a candidate;and with no ‘proven case of criminal offense ’ or breach of national or international law,is not just an unpatriotic act but a condemnable act. “
