The Canadian High Commission in Nigeria has warned Nigerians to “shine their eyes” concerning reports that Canada is seeking millions of Nigerians to take up permanent residency in the country.

This comes after viral news reports claimed that Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada, has pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to allow one million Nigerians enter Canada under a new Employment and Migration Programme designed for immigrants.

The report quoted Trudeau as saying “we can’t undermine or overlook the contribution of immigrants in Canada’s development especially our brothers and sisters from Nigeria”, and a spokesperson for the Canadian Labour Department, Shadrack Scott, as adding: “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.”

However, the Canadian High Commission has denied the report saying, “this particular story is FALSE.  Nigerians are welcome to apply to immigrate to Canada.
