Dr. Akinwumi Adesina, who is the President of the African Development Bank Group, has decried the listing of many African countries with travel restrictions due to the Omicron COVID-19 variant.
According to him, “Now that omicron has been found in many non-African and developed countries, why are travels from those countries not banned? Why single out African countries? Singling out African countries is very unfair, non-scientific, and discriminatory. Lift bans on African countries!” He noted that the “Global vaccines’ and travel apartheid against Africa are endangering lives, hurting economies, lives, jobs and livelihoods, from a pandemic Africa did not cause. End the apartheid. Respect Africa!”
