The United States while calling for a peaceful and transparent election in the Anambra gubernatorial exercise scheduled to hold Saturday has warned troublemakers to stay off as great penalties awaits them.
In a press statement released in Abuja Wednesday by Press unit of the United States Embassy in Abuja, it noted the United States looks forward to a gubernatorial election in Anambra State on November 6 that is peaceful and transparent, with results that accurately reflect the will of the state’s residents.
According to the statement, “We will be paying close attention to actions of individuals who interfere with the democratic process or instigate violence against civilian populations before, during, or after the elections.
“We will not hesitate to consider consequences – including visa restrictions – for those found to be responsible for election-related violence or undermining the democratic process” the statement read in part.
“Under U.S. immigration law, certain violations also may lead to restrictions on family members.
“We call on citizens, electoral officials, party members, and security force personnel to do their part in ensuring a credible and secure electoral process” the statement concluded.
