FG vows stiffer sanction for expatriate quota abuse

The Federal Government has expressed worry over the lingering abuse of the expatriate quota policy by local and foreign companies, saying stiffer punishment would be meted out to violators.

Expatriate quota is an approval granted to companies by the government to allow them to engage foreigners with technical competence in areas that may not be readily available in the country for a given period.

The Chairman, Task Force on Expatriate Quota Administration in Nigeria under the Ministry of Interior, Bola Ilori, said this to newsmen after he led a delegation on an inspection of some companies in Rivers State on Wednesday.

Ilori said the idea of the policy was to ensure that Nigerians were not shot-changed, pointing out that the country must benefit from the activities of the expatriates that come here.
