‘Shine your eyes’ We didn’t beg Buhari for one million immigrants – Canada

Canada has debunked reports that Justin Trudeau, its prime minister, begged President Muhammadu Buhari for one million Nigerian immigrants.

According to the report, because of its new employment and migration programme, pleaded with the Nigerian president for one million Nigerians to migrate to its country.

Owner of Ovation Magazine, Dele Momodu had shared the report, which has now been dismissed as false, on social media on Sunday.

“The programme’s website will be launched next week and all available jobs will be listed. Currently, there are over 6 million vacancies and we are hoping that Buhari allows at least one million people from Nigeria Nigeria,” he quoted.

However, the Canadian embassy in its response to Momodu’s tweet asked Nigerians to open their eyes whenever they see immigration offers that sound too good to be true.

“If you see a story online about moving to Canada that seems too good to be true – shine your eyes well-well o!!!

“Over 4,200 Nigerians were approved for permanent residency in Canada in 2017, which is almost double the number from the year prior. Nigerians in Canada make important contributions to both countries.
