Companies in Dubai have started excluding Nigerian applicants from vacancies after Ramon Olorunwa Abass popularly known as Hushpuppi was arrested in the United Arab Emirates.
Recall that Hushpuppi and other Nigerians were arrested for fraud in Dubai and extradited to the United States.
YEN.com.gh sighted some jobs advertised online and open to candidates of every nationality except Nigerians.
Apart from blacklisting Nigerians from applying for jobs in Dubai, the latter is also denying Nigerians tourist visa.
In a letter sighted by YEN, the UAE made it known that Nigerian passport holders are not permitted to obtain a tourist visa to the country in the meantime.
The letter read in part: "Dear Applicant, Thank you for contacting us. Unfortunately, your visa application has been rejected as Nigerian passport holders are not permitted to obtain a tourism visa to the UAE in the meantime.
"However, this may change at any time as the permitted nationalities are updated frequently."
In other news, the past few weeks have been filled with horror for flamboyant Nigerian man Ramon Olorunwa Abass popularly known as Ray Hushpuppi following his arrest by the Dubai Police and extradition to the United States.
Hushpuppi is currently being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Centre (MCC) in Chicago and out of curiosity many are wondering what the holding facility looks like.
According to the description on the official website of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the correctional facility was established in 1930 for the purpose of providing progressive and humane care for federal inmates.
The MCC has a mix of male and female offenders with the total number of inmates currently at 567.
