Paul Arkwright, the British high  commission to Nigeria, has backed the travel ban placed on 50 high profile Nigerians by the President Muhammdu Buhari administration.

Recall that thirteen former governors and seven ex-ministers have been barred from travelling out of the country, under Executive Order 6, EO6, issued by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The restriction followed the judicial affirmation of the constitutionality and legality of the Executive Order 6, EO6,.

The watch-list and restriction were put in place pending the conclusion of corruption cases against those affected.

Arkwright, however, said that Buhari’s EO6 was important for the fight against corruption and rooting it out where it’s happening.

“I’ve heard that this is an anti-corruption measure. It’s not for me to say who should or should not be on the list,” Arkwright told Channels TV on Monday, October 15, 2018.

“But what I would say is that it’s very important in continuing this fight against corruption and rooting out corruption where it is happening.”
