Buhari,Atiku travel ban- US Government
The United States Government has explained why it has been silence over an allegation by a former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, that President Muhammadu Buhari was barred from entering the US for 15 years.
Speaking through Nick Sadoski, an official of the Department of State, the American Government said it would also not discuss the reasons Atiku is being denied entry into the US.
Two weeks ago, Atiku, in an interview with The Boss magazine, disclosed that the US had barred Buhari from the US for 15 years due to his religious beliefs.
The Presidency had issued a statement, debunking Atiku’s claim.
Sadoski told Punch, “Due to US privacy laws, visa cases are considered confidential. We do not discuss specific cases.
“Unfortunately, I don’t have anything further to add at this time.
“Regarding questions about visas, due to US privacy laws, visa cases are considered confidential and we do not discuss private cases.”
