Companies employing foreigners to pay N2 million fine- Reps

repsThe House of Representatives sought tougher measures on Thursday to restrict the employment of foreign nationals by firms or organisations in the country, raising the penalty for violation from the extant N1m to N2m.

A bill to “restrict” the issuance of work permits to foreigners by the Federal Government passed second reading at the House.

The bill, which was sponsored by the Majority Leader of the House, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila, was the House’s response to how to address the growing unemployment in the country.

In addition, it provided that foreigners would be considered for a job only when it was proven that no Nigerian possessed the requisite qualifications for the job.

The bill, an amendment to the Immigration Act, 2015, raised the penalty for violation from the extant N1m to N2m.
