COVID-19 Omicron: Nigeria , South Africa told to shut borders

Former presidential candidate, Kingsley Moghalu has asked Nigeria and South Africa to reciprocate travel bans by western countries and shut their borders.

Many developed countries have been shutting their doors against African countries due to the newly detected coronavirus variant in South Africa.The UK announced that it found 21 cases of the COVID-19 Omicron variant which werelinked to Nigeria.It further confirmed that all flights from Nigeria from Monday would be restricted. All pending visa applications in Nigeria have also been suspended.

Moghalu in a post on his Twitter page wrote: “Nigeria and other African countries such as South Africa should issue reciprocal restrictions or bans on any Western countries that restrict or ban travel by Africans because of the Omicron variant of #COVID19.”

According to him, It is unconscionable to subject Africans to restrictions because of avariant that did not originate from the continent, when Western countries with similar or more cases are not subject to similar restrictions.” This is more than public health. It is about worldviews in international relations. Our dignity matters. Our leaders should protect it instead of as is the case with Nigeria today, traveling around the world with a begging bowl for foreign assistance,” his tweet read.

Meanwhile, the Nigerians government has said there is no need for travel ban over concerns of Omicron variant.
