IBADAN, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- The Chairperson, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM) Mrs. Abike Dabiri-Erewa said the recent cult clashes and crimes committed by Nigerians in Dubai have made it impossible for males below 30 to be granted visas.
She also said that the unfortunate incident where a Nigerian, Mr. Alika Ogorchukwu was beaten to death in Italy is a priority for the Nigerian Embassy in Italy, stating that the accused must be tried and prosecuted accordingly.
She said this yesterday when she featured on ‘The Morning Show’ on Arise News Channel
On visa accessibility by Nigerians, she said: “I think a few Nigerians have taken bad behaviour too far and we have to admit and accept that. It is not about profiling or generalisation, it has gone too far. So, what the Dubai authorities have done is they’ve made their visa processes more stringent. So if you are a male below 30, no visa for you. It is very difficult, they have made it so stringent that you’re not likely to fulfill it. It doesn’t matter who you are.”
“Secondly, if you’re looking to Dubai now, you have to provide a six-month bank account, you have to have your return ticket and you must show proof of accommodation and if you lie, they are going to know and turn you back.”
“So, let’s learn to obey laws of other countries and just do the right things because there are too many good Nigerians in Dubai.”
