Go to court, Presidency tells critics of travel ban on 50 Nigerians

The Presidency on Sunday advised those who are opposed to the decision of the Federal Government to place about 50 Nigerians being investigated for corruption on travel ban to go to court.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said this in an interview with Punch correspondent.

Shehu was reacting to the criticisms that trailed a statement he issued on Saturday that the government had put the prominent Nigerians on a watch list in its resolve to fully implement the Executive Order 6 signed by President Muhammadu Buhari in July.

Apart from the travel ban, the presidential spokesman had also indicated that financial transactions of the affected persons were being monitored by relevant agencies to ensure that the assets in question were not dissipated and that such persons did not interfere with the investigation and litigation processes.

Shehu told Punch correspondent on Sunday that those who felt the government’s decision was wrong were at liberty to approach the court.

He assured Nigerians that the present administration would not abandon the anti-corruption fight, which he said had been attracting accolades to the government both locally and from abroad.
