Read what he tweeted below:

Had a Skype interview this morning for a job in China, interview was going on smoothly until it got to the stage where I was asked what my nationality was. I responded with all confidence that I hold an African passport, Nigerian to be precise. Two seconds, the interviewer said

“I am sorry we cannot take your application further because the government/immigration requirements for work visa is only open to South Africa, UK, USA, Canada and Europe”. Immediately my countenance changed, I tried all I could to persuade and possibly offer an alternative

  1. Not sure why you applied for the job to start with, that sounds like English teaching job in china which the primary requirements to meet the job description needs the applicant to be a native English speaker and since Nigeria is not considered as one you application will fall through. You don’t need to hide behind the curtain of being a Nigerian for not getting your lucrative contract. You simply doesn’t meet the minimum requirements, even if you are from Germany, Namibia, Brazil , Rwanda or Switzerland the result wouldn’t have been any different. Don’t confuse people with your half information, this is the genesis of Nigerians trouble trying to seek sympathy with it’s not necessary.
