A clarification has been made by the United Arab Emirates Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr Fahad Obaid Al Taffaq why the country is no longer renewing work permit for some Nigerians.
Taffaq said that the UAE didn't place a ban on the issuance of work permits for Nigerians living and working in the UAE.
Speaking earlier with Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman/CEO, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM) at the Embassy in Abuja, Al Taffaq noted that there’s no such ban against any country.
He although, admitted that there are possibly isolated cases of individuals whose work visas were not renewed for one reason or the other.
Dr Al Taffaq explained that recently, UAE issued over 50 visas to Nigerians, adding that there are thousands of Nigerians working and living legally in the UAE.
The UAE Envoy said they were optimistic that Emirates Airlines would soon resume flights into Nigeria.
In her remarks, Mrs Dabiri-Erewa said the clarification was reassuring given a barrage of calls and inquiries by Nigerians within and outside the UAE on the official stoppage of issuance of work permits to Nigerians.
NiDCOM boss urged Nigerians in the UAE to always obey the laws of their host country, be good Ambassadors and excel in whatever they do.
