The Federal Government has vowed to sanction companies not complying with expatriate policy of the country.
Nigerian Expatriate Business Permit and Expatriate Quota is a special permit granted to foreign or local companies to recruit foreigners to work in Nigeria. The Ministry of Interior is saddled with the responsibility in line with section 36(1) of the Immigration Act.
The Chairman of the Special Ministerial Task Force on Monitoring and Enforcement of Nigerian Expatriate Business Permit and Expatriate Quota Administration, Bola Ilori in a statement following a meeting in Osogbo, Osun State with representatives of the Nigerian Immigration Service, Nigeria Labour Congress, Nigerian Bar Association, Nigerian Society of Engineers accused some companies in Nigeria of rigging the system.
He noted that instead of recruiting qualified Nigerian People to understudy the expatriates, some companies opt for secondary school certificate holders in a bid to get renewal permit for their foreign expatriate.
“The problem is that some of these companies are either not employing Nigerian People at all or using school certificate holders to be understudying expatriates who are managers. How can a school certificate holder understudy a manager?” He asked.
Ilori said that henceforth, “Every company must submit the details of Nigerian People understudying expatriates in their organisations.”
He added that they must “submit the Tax Identification Number, National Identity Number of each Nigerian understudying expatriates in their companies.”
