The High Commission of Canada to Nigeria has faulted an online story claiming that the Canadian Government had petitioned President Muhammadu Buhari, asking him to release one million Nigerians for the Canadian government to fill six million job vacancies.
The High Commission, via its official Twitter handle @CanHCNigeria, warned;
“If you see a story online about moving to Canada that seems too good to be true – shine your eyes well-well.”
The warning was in response to a story titled, “Canada’s Prime Minister begs Nigeria President for one million immigrants,” published by an online platform and re-published and wildly circulated on the social media.
The High Commission of Canada to Nigeria, in response, warned, “If you’ve seen this link on your social media timeline, don’t fall for it.
