US Govt Denies Visa Restrictions On INEC Chairman, Commissioners, Others



The United State embassy in Abuja has denied reports that the US government has placed a Visa restriction on the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), prof Mahmood Yakubu and some commissioners of the electoral body.
