Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has attributed the recent visa ban by the United States on some Nigerians involved in electoral fraud as the reason for the successful conduct of the Edo Governorship election.

He made this claim while speaking as a guest on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily on Friday.

He stated that threatening to place a visa ban on anyone found guilty of rigging, forced people to act appropriately.

“One thing that played out and which I noticed was the role of the international community. For example, the US, the UK came out and said that there would be a visa ban if anybody tries anything in terms of violence or rigging and they have gone further to ban some governors,” he said.

“Everybody was being careful, saying, I don’t want to have any problem, I don’t want my children and family to have any problem. We all go to the UK everytime.

“Infact they should even go further, not only politicians, but security agencies, then you’ll see everybody will sit up and say look, I cannot jeopardize the future of my children and mine, simply because you want me to rig the election, so it’s very key”.
