Granting visa to Atiku will mean you endorse him — FG warns US


The Federal Government tells the U. S. to be cautious in granting visa to the PDP Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, in order not to create the impression of endorsing him for the 2019 election.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, gave the government position at an interactive session with media executives in Abuja on Thursday.

Mohammed said that the government was aware of the move by the former Vice President to lobby the U . S. to lift the visa ban imposed on him.

He 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.

“ We understand and appreciate the fact that it is the prerogative of the U . S. to grant a visa to anyone who applies.
