Reacting in a post on Twitter on Friday, Senator Shehu Sani described the statement by Lai Mohammed as “unpatriotic”.

He wrote: “Telling a foreign country not to grant a visa to your fellow citizen on the ground that he is a candidate; and with no ‘proven case of criminal offense ’ or breach of national or international law, is not just an unpatriotic act but a condemnable act.”
