NBM to assist ‘stranded’ Nigerians in UAE
The United Arab Emirate chapter of the Neo-Black Movement of Africa (NBM) has concluded plans to assist in regularising the residency of illegal Nigerian migrants in that country.
The group indicated its willingness to help the affected persons without legal permits following a three-month amnesty announced by the UAE government covering August 1 to October 31, 2018.
The proposed reprieve is for all foreigners contravening the country’s residency laws.
NBM noted that regularisation of the stay of the ‘stranded’ Nigerians would enable them enjoy benefits such as employments and free movement.
In a statement, the chapter president of the movement, Paul Osifo, urged “all violators from Nigeria to take advantage of the amnesty provided by the government.”
He pleaded with the Nigerian consulate in Abu Dhabi to assist willing illegal residents with flight tickets back home.
The group advised affected citizens to visit the Nigerian embassy in the capital or Consulate General of Dubai for more information.
