Obama Administration Bars Lucky Igbinedion From Entering US

Left-Former Edo state governor, Lucky Igbinedion on trial for corruption
By SaharaReporters, New York

Corrupt former Governor Lucky Igbinedion of Edo State may no longer enter the US, SaharaReporters has discovered from sources in Washington, DC. One of the sources revealed that the American consular authorities had written to Mr. Igbinedion to tell him that he was no longer welcome in the US.

Another source indicated that the former governor, who has been convicted for corrupt practices shortly after  his governorship term, had multiple entry visas to the US. "However, he has received a letter revoking his visa," said one source.

Mr. Igbinedion was a two-term governor in Edo State where he looted the treasury mindlessly, according to documents gathered by the EFCC.

Our source in Washington, DC disclosed that the US government was reviewing the files of some of Nigeria's current and former government officials and will deny them visas once they are deemed undesirable on account of their engagement in corruption.

Dear 'Anonymous',

I'm assuming you're not using your real name since you don't want to jeopardize your visa application that is sitting now at the US Embassy pending approval.

So what, you ask? You have GOT to be kidding! What is so special about it? If you don't know, why not ask the hundreds of thousands of your countrymen who apply and go everyday?

Jealousy is so pathetic.

......AND SO BLOODY WHAT IF HE IS NOT ALLOWED TO ENTER U.S AGAIN

So what if he didnt enter U.S? what is so special about it? abeg obama try another thing now after all your people are part of the corruption that the african nations find them selves today! idiota

CAN AMERICAN EMBASSY GO TO UYO PLEASE?

Can the American Embassy send their secrect agents to Uyo to see corruption and looting in ACTIVE action? They loot and build estates all over the state without caring about the owners of the money..... Akwa Ibom People.
JULIOUS BERGER, SETRACO and GITTO are the contracting firms helping Godswill Akpabio the 419/Cultist in laundering money for him.

Godswill Akpabio, his brothers, Godswill's wife SSG and five of his commissioners are stealing the state dry. There is real looting in Akwa Ibom.

We thank the American & British governments for frightening these crooks.

Obama, God will continue to bless you.

The US are trying to steal our oil wealth...

I'm not saying the US shouldn't banned him from going to the states. My only concern is for them to return the wealth he has in their country to naijas. Lucky Igbinedion is a son of the SS republic and never in any way stole what rightfully belongs to him. Naijas depend on the SS and SE oil resources to survive. The owners of this oil crude naijas lives depends on are from SS and SE, making the Hausa-fulani north and Yorubas a pest. Therefore, the US should only ban naija citizens from these regional liabilities and not citizens of SS and SE nationals. Thier radar should be beamed on ACN thug Tinubu, ota baboon, bankoles, Atiku's and IBB's and thier ilks. All SE SS nationals MUST not be labelled as thieves for taking what's derived from her oil resources. This is unacceptable.

Igbinedion.

Nemesis will soon catch up with the greatest thief ever to preside over the whole of Edo State where he looted the treasury. If EFCC cannot catch up with him the voices of the suffering masses of my state from whom he stole will surely do and I am sure his space in hell fire is already waiting for him where he will suffer for ever. Ole! Thief! Barawo!

aliyu, Your hatred for my

aliyu,

Your hatred for my brother sultanofsokoto will consume you. Why do you pick on him all the time? He mentioned the Northerners who stole this country silly and you get uptight about it. Do you want us to carry them should-high and call them rank ya dede as you their minions do? Stop calling my brother arne. Everybody cannot be a Mohammedan, and you know it.

Allah Wubade. If this is to

Allah Wubade. If this is to happen that means no Northern ruler can enter USA anymore. The only important places they are free to enter are: Somalia, Northern Sudan, Afghanistan, Paki and of course Arabia.

Dear Lucky, USA is not the

Dear Lucky,

USA is not the kingdom of God. Afterall the current state of the US economy is almost a blessing to be barred from. Chief Lucky, do you have Swiss, South African, Iranian, Afganistan... visas? If you do, your world will be better of without the US'.

Oba of Benin, please bar this demon from Benin Kingdom too.

HE IS IN CHARGE IN SOUTH AFRICA!

He is a "Lord" in South Africa. He hardly need this people (U.S), as long as he can shuttle Dubai, South Africa and others.

African Spring Now B4 they buldoze their way to positions 2015

To borrow from my respected columnist Pius Adesanmi, “we are a nation of 150 million spectators”. That is, we are spectators in our own country waiting on foreigners-America and Britain to come & redeem us from the claws & clutches of our oppressors - presidency, members of the national legislooters, judiciary, & their foot soldiers in govt parastatals. If not, why should we allow the momentum of “Occupy Nigeria” to fizzle away. Those who shed their blood for the occasion is calling on NLC, SNG, CLO, CRP, CDHR, CD, Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law, NIALS, Human Rights Africa, Legal Research & Resource Development Center, grassroot orgs - MOSOP, Nigerian Women Organizations, Ogoni People's Organization, National Association of Democratic Lawyers, & others to action. African Spring Now B4 2015 or we have failed

Wow! I wonder if Lucky was

Wow! I wonder if Lucky was the only Nigerian governor that has ever looted?

Money can buy the visa,

Money can buy the visa, depending on who owns the money.

what of Akpabio

Does anyone know when the State Department and EU plan to take similar action on Akwa-Ibom State's Looter and Criminal in chief, Godswill Akpabio? I can't wait till both the U.S government and the EU revoke Akpabio's visas, and possibly have him arrested for the rogue and criminal that he is.

Alas For Looters

Alas! Alas! for looters.

Igbinedion Illgotten wealth in USA

Thanks to USA Govt, especially the administration of Barack Obama, Obama is known for his zero tolerance for corruption, Lucky Igbinedion's wife and other family members should also be flushed out of the US, where they are enjoying the looted funds in their mansions in Boston, Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angelis Houston etc, The purpose of stopping Lucky Igbinedion;s visit to US will be deafeted if members of his family and business fronts are allowed to live and visit USA and enjoy the illgotten wealth of the Igbinedion clan

Nigerian “Harmattan Spring NOW or NEVER”

“"Occupy Nigeria" failed to metamorphose into a genuine, sustained mass movement”– CNN. Unlike the “Arab Spring” in Egypt, its 1st anniversary came come & was gone insignificantly- with no marked event! Come On Nigerians! We MUST wake up and redeem our country from tyrants, despots, rogues, & thieves who bulldozed themselves their way into power & parading themselves as leaders. It’s time for the Nigerian sub-Saharan Harmattan Spring now or never. With 2015 election mushrooming we can only expect worse! NOW or NEVER. http://www.edition.cnn.com/2013/01/12/world/africa/nigeria-protests-afri...

@Anonymous in addition to

@Anonymous in addition to your point,Tinubu has made himself Orisha (god) while the rest ACN chieftains have made themselves Ebora (Demons).In fact they have and are sourcing evil powers from the moon,sun,star,under water,graves,caves,inside trees,inside rocks etc all in the name of power,wealth,fame etc if anyone of them is closed to you, i will advise you steer clear from them.They are all full of evils.
NOT ONLY ACN,BUT ALL THE POLITICIANS INCLUDING PDP.

ACN CHIEFTAINS

Tinubu, Fashola,Ikuforiji,fowler,and all other Lagos/ACN politician robbing Lagos blind. Human right to them is nill. Destroy people's property and later share the land in house. Sahara, while you are out there doing a wonderful job in reporting these idiots, always be honest and fair in your dealings. You hardly report anything about ACN , and these cabals have wasted,injured,drained and killed Yorubas.

It's time for nigerian spring

Remember Ibori, Aondoakaa, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha? That’s what I mean. Why can’t we naijas have our “african spring” as did tunisia, egypt, or libya? Or @ least jail these filthy rats called leaders as did Zambia, Kenya, or Egypt instead of waiting 4 others to do ur fighting 4 us. These crooks live, eat, dine, wine & sleep with us!

What about Tinubu,Fashola,Fowler and all other ACN Crooks?

Former Edo State Governor

The American government - and their European counterpart - should extend the same 'right hand of fellowship' to past & present corrupt House of Reps, Senate and Governors in Nigeria.

Authentification access control

Sahara Reporters, you are for Christ sake operating in an hi-tech environment. It is high time you have an administrator to grant access to and monitor your numerious audience who might want to comment on any story you published.
If that is in place, commentators like this idiot man misplacing corruption for ethnic sentiment will find it difficult to write nonsense for people to read.
