The travel ban placed on some African countries due to the covid-19 Omicron variant has caused Nigerian actress Beverly Naya to react.
On Sunday, December 5, 2021, Beverly shared a series of tweets via her Twitter page, expressing worry over the manner Africans are treated by the western world.
“Breaks my heart every time I hear Africans talking about how much our continent needs the western world when it is actually the other way round. The media has seriously done a number on a lot of African minds. Do your research, I beg you! The world is nothing without Africa,” she tweeted.
“African nations need to form an alliance and ban all of these countries. To hell with the narrative they’ve pushed for centuries, this continent has EVERYTHING they need. Africa’s biggest problem is poor leadership which is the sole reason why the above may never happen.”
It would be recalled that the United Kingdom banned foreign travellers from Nigeria over the spread of the new covid-19 variant, Omicron.
This came days after the Canadian Government added Nigeria to its travel ban list over the Omicron COVID-19 variant.
