It was recently reported that the government of the United Kingdom banned travelers from Nigeria from entering into the country, as a result of Omicron COVID-19 variant that was recently discovered in Nigeria.
Shortly after the ban was announced by the United Kingdom, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed came out and accused the United Kingdom of being a racist nation.
Based on that note, the former special assistant to former president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, decided to reply him. While replying him, Reno made him to understand that the UK’s Health Secretary is of Pakistani origin, yet he listed his own country Pakistan before Nigeria. He ended his tweet by asking to know if he is being racist to his own race too.
This is really an important statement from Reno Omokri. I really don’t think that there is any reason why we should be crying just because the United Kingdom banned travelers from Nigeria from entering into their own country. The United Kingdom has every right to decide who comes into their country and who doesn’t.
Those in government should put things in order so that Nigerians will be happy living in Nigeria, instead of looking for a way to travel out.
