Dubai based company, Shirley Recruitment Consultants has released details for recruitment of Merchandisers and stated Nigerians are exempted from applying.
The job summary states, looking for Merchandisers in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) and in the job qualification, it stated clearly, Male or female African candidates except Nigerians can apply for the position.
Things may not be looking very good for Nigerian experts seeking for job offers in Dubai if other companies decide to follow in the foot steps of this company.
This decision may have resulted from the recent arrest of several Nigerians in Dubai including Hushpuppi and Woodberry who are facing fraud charges in the US.
A reason for this discrimination and exclusion is yet to be clarified by the company.
See the job qualification and experience needed, as stated by the company below.
Recall that Abike Dabiri-Erewa the Chairman of the Nigerians in the Diaspora Commission, had said that Hushpuppi is not a yardstick to judge other Nigerians excelling outside the country. She also urged Nigerians abroad to be law-abiding citizens, good ambassadors and not tarnish the image of the country.
Hushpuppi, who was extradited to US from Dubai last week Thursday faces trial in Los Angeles, where his case has been filed before a US District Court in Central District of California. Hushpuppi has reportedly hired Gal Pissetzky, a highly respected lawyer in Chicago who specializes in criminal cases.
