December 6th, 2018

No fewer than 200 groups under the auspices of the Fo­rum of Non Government Organisations (FONGON), yesterday stormed the United States of America (USA) Embassy to protest a purported granting of entry visa to former Vice-President of Nigeria and Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming 2019 presidential election by the US government.

The group urged the US government not to grant him a Visa request because of his proven cases of cor­ruption, especially when 2019 general elections are fast approaching.

The group with various placards read thus: “Money laundering is the high­est level of financial crime. America, say no to Atiku Visa request;

Nigerians say no to America’s interference in the nation’s politics; We got a letter from America listing people to be inves­tigated for financial crime, Atiku was one of them; USA, please stay clear of Nigeria’s internal politics; No to issuance of politically motivated Visa to Atiku; as well as Donald Trump, don’t Trump for Atiku, say no to Visa request and USA, why now after 14 years of de­nial due to criminal money laundering?”

The National Chair­man and Convener of the coalition, Comrade Wole Badmus, who addressed newsmen, appealed to the American government to be steadfast and ensure that 2019 general elections in Nigeria are transparent.

When The Authority sought for a response from the US embassy Public Af­fairs ,it failed.
