Omicron: Impose Travel Ban On UK – Fani-Kayode Charges FG

A former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has called on the Nigerian Government to place a travel ban on the citizens of the United Kingdom over the outbreak of Omicron Variant.
Fani-Kayode stated this on Monday while condemning the restriction of travel ban placed on Nigerians by the UK government.

According to the former minister, the decision of the UK government is wicked, unacceptable, self-serving, and racist.

Fani-Kayode in a post on Twitter wrote, “To say the travel ban imposed on Nigerians by the UK is “travel apartheid” is putting it mildly.

“It is worse than that: it is racist, discriminatory, wicked, unacceptable, self-serving, vile, sinister, selective, vicious, provocative & unacceptable. We should reciprocate the gesture.”

Recall that the United Kingdom last Saturday banned all flights from Nigeria following the three cases of the Omicron Variant detected in the country.

The UK Mission in Nigeria in a statement on Saturday said, “From 4 am on 6 December, Nigeria will be added to the red list for international travel to England.

“This follows 21 recent cases of COVID-19 variant B.1.1.529 (Omicron) linked to travels from Nigeria.

“From 4 am on 6 December, the UK and Irish citizens and residents arriving from Nigeria must isolate in a government-approved managed quarantine facility for 10 days, and receive two PCR tests, as the UK government takes further precautionary action against the Omicron variant.
