Canada will lift the travel ban placed on Nigeria and nine other African countries on Saturday.

The ban will be lifted at 11.59 pm, Nigerian time.

Canada placed travel ban on Nigeria and some other African countries, mostly from Southern Africa, including South Africa, in the wake of the outbreak of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

Egypt was also on the list.

Many people decried the travel ban which they described as travel apartheid.
