Former presidential candidate, Kingsley Moghalu, has called on Nigeria and other African countries to respond in kind to the travel restrictions by the UK, Canada and other western countries.

Following the discovery of the Omicron variant, the UK, US, Canada, and a number of countries in Europe, banned travellers from African countries.

Reacting to the development on Monday, Moghalu, a former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) said: 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,” he wrote on social media.

“It’s unconscionable to subject Africans to restrictions because of a variant 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’s about worldviews in international relations. Our dignity matters. Our leaders should protect it instead of as is the case with Nigeria today, travelling around the world with a begging bowl for foreign assistance.”
