Former lawmaker who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the 8th Senate, Shehu Sani, has strongly advocated sanctions against Nigerians found guilty of electoral malpractices.

2023 elections ended with manifold cases of electoral offences ranging from vote-buying, violence, ballot snatching and many others.

Nigerians as well as civil society organizations had advocated strict sanctions on anybody, including politicians, guilty of the infractions.

Tweeting in reaction to the development on Saturday, the former lawmaker accused the Nigerian government of unwillingness to prosecute proven electoral offenders.

Sani, therefore, advocated visa ban as well as banking restrictions as sanctions against offenders.

“The FG is not interested in bringing to book those who were involved in undermining our elections either by electoral opacity, promoting violence or fanning ethnic or religious hate. The visa ban should be activated urgently, including flights and Banking restrictions”, he wrote.
