Nigerian applicants have reportedly been exempted by some Dubai companies from jobs in the oil-rich emirate.
A cursory search of jobs on indeed.ae, a popular job listing site, showed that some companies specifically exempted Nigerian applicants.
Some of the jobs were listed as open to any nationality except Nigerians.
A few were listed as open to Africans but also specifically exempted Nigerians.
No reasons were given for this situation. However, Nigerians have reportedly faced discrimination abroad which many have blamed on rising cases of internet fraud perpetrated by some citizens.
