Dubai companies have started rejecting job applicants from Nigerians under the age of 40.
This comes a few days after Hushpuppi was arrested by the Interpol and FBI over involvement in several fraudulent activities.
The companies added a clause in their job adverts stating that candidates of every nationality can apply except Nigerians.
A vacancy for merchandisers was advertised by Shirley Recruitment Consultants in Dubai. However, they stated that they do not want Nigerians.
“Male or female African candidates except Nigerians,” one job advert from Dubai reads.
Nigerian students are also affected.
A Nigerian who applied to SANS Technology Institute in the US was denied admission because he stated that he’s from Nigeria.
