Asians Hawking Vegetables, Selling Ankara, Taking Over Nigerian Jobs – FG by JosEast(m): 9:19am On Apr 15, 2021
The Nigerian government is worried that expatriates are taking over jobs in the country.

According to the Nigerian government, this is responsible for the soaring number of unemployed youths in the country.
As Nigerians battle inflation: Where are the mercenaries and tools to tame the monster?

Nigeria’s Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, while declaring open a stakeholders’ meeting on expatriate quota administration in Abuja on Wednesday, said uncontrolled activities of foreigners in the country were starving Nigerian youths of employment opportunities.
He lamented that the horrible stories of insecurity in the Newspapers every morning was a cause for concern to all patriotic Nigerians.
Aregbesola said: “I have a good cause to say that this meeting has been long overdue in the sense that its outcomes will tie up a lot of loose ends in the obsolete handbook last reviewed in 2004, which has been in use as a guide to granting approvals to requests for various types of expatriate quota made to the Ministry of Interior.

“I recall that during the presentation of the draft handbook on Business Permit & Expatriate Quota Administration by a 10-man committee set up to review the handbook, I made the case for an expanded stakeholder meeting that will generate a comprehensive handbook in line with international best practices.

“Some of the abuses we have discovered are egregious. We have seen cases of expatriates fraudulently coming in to work as bricklayers, painters and even high-end consorts.

“Some also circumvent the rules by dubiously acquiring Nigerian citizenship through scam marriages.
“The funny but tragic case of some Asians hawking vegetables went viral. These are clear economic sabotage acts that should be detected, stopped and sanctioned.”

The stakeholders’ meeting is expected to produce a brand new, well-articulated handbook on expatriate quota administration that will have fair and reasonable sanctions that will be effective enough to curb abuses of Business Permit & Expatriate Quota.

Also, it is expected to ensure that the benefits and revenues accruable to the country would now begin to pour in while the teeming unemployed youth in Nigeria would have increased opportunities for employment through the understudy programme stipulated in the expatriate quota guideline.

The tragedy in this government is that they complain and cry about things they were elected to solve. You are the president, you command the Army, the Navy, the airforce, the immigration, the customs, the civil Defence, the...., YET, you prefer to moan like the ordinary civilians in the streets.. That is the height of dereliction of duty.. Make the laws to protect yourself and stop complaining about things you can solve!

What the Asians are doing in this country is called economic terrorism! If you think they just wandered in here and started illegal gold mining, illegal oil sales, counterfeiting and domination of retail trade, then you are as naive as they come...
Most of them work for the "triad", the clans, the cults and ofcourse the governments! Their home governments survey different weak and corrupt countries with fledging and dishonest governments and send them there to go on a looting expedition. I'm sure that most of these foreign governments make hundreds times more money from Nigeria illegally, than they give Nigeria as "Aids"!

Some Chinese were caught in Zamfara with guns involved in illegal mining! Try that as a foreigner in China and your organs will be harvested! Many Nigerians have died in Asian prisons for minor cases related to issues with their resident permits, how much more when you are caught in these serious economic sabotaging acts? They are producing the goods we consume, they are wholesaling these goods and now retailing it! Where in that chain will vulnerable Nigerians make their living from?

DEPORT ALL OF THEM AND MAKE LAWS THAT ALLOW ONLY WEST AFRICANS INTO SMALL SCALE RETAILING! Nigerian retailers have been banned in big China! Why are Chinese retailers flourishing here?

Most Asian countries make the process of getting business permits so stiff and expensive that many Nigerians living there can't afford it.. You risk having your goods seized and you deported if you're caught contravening the laws..
Here in Nigeria, majority of these Asians don't sweat to get business permits! Some don't even go for it! They just walk in here and start doing whatever they like. Turning the country into a huge dump site while disappearing with the next flight once their billions are made.
If you know how many Nigerians that have been run out of business by these Asians and their cheap imports, you would understand how dangerous the phenomenon is..

I have seen Asians hawking mobile phones, batteries and chargers in the east..
If you are involved in wood/timber, solid minerals, hyde and skin or agro exports from Nigeria, you would have noticed that they have run Nigerians out of business.
Don't get it wrong; I'm not against market forces per se, dictating things.., but when you monitor their modus operandi, their endless financial supply, their government total support..., you will notice it's a case of a more organized government trying to out muscle the citizens of a chaotic country. Their home governments are involved! In some if these areas, they will never allow a foreigner from say Nigeria to have an import license which is the basic to ship directly into their market. But they will get in here, stay for over a year without immigration hassles, skirt around local whole salers and go into the bushes to buy WITHOUT paying taxes then bribe custom officers to get out fast and cheap!
This country is badly managed!

The Russians stopped the Chinese from these sort of petty retailing, the Ghanaians under the former president chased them away from illegal mining, the Zambians and the Camerounians have rioted against this surreptitious hyjack of the local retail business..
If the unskilled locals are stampeded from ordinary retail trade, what else should they do to feed other than to loot or beg?

How many of the FG wives and children are Hawking veggies?

Let them join the Chinese to hawk since their fathers have become special advisers in vegetable Hawking.

Because our government are enablers.
Go to a typical illegal goldmine. You'll see a detachment of heavily armed policemen and soldiers guarding the economy saboteurs.

As far as their oga at the top is collecting his cut, he doesn't care if a bunch of weird smelling chinks loot our natural resources.

No one cares about patriotism anymore. Morals have gone to the dogs. This is a shithole and everyone is about his or her pocket.

Unfortunately, the reality of the situation is that their will be certain quantity of people whose skill set is not so sophisticated to access positions beyond these kind of petty jobs. It's the same in almost every economy. You can't make folks without any school qualifications bank managers.. And they constitute a huge chunk of the society in most parts... Retailing is mostly an 'easy-first step' into a reasonable economic activity for most moderately skilled citizens, especially in a less industrialized economy like ours.. While it might be less sophisticated compared to other job categories, it's very necessary in keeping a sizeable number of the population busy.. From a security point of view, most of the people who do these kinds of jobs are likelyto be the first set of people who will join a protest or riot before before the "big men", ... They're also, very regrettably the first kind of citizens who might take to violent crimes to make ends meet, if they're jobless.. So keeping them gainfully busy is good for everyone..
