As a true nigerian and believer in pursuit of global peace, let us all put aside our wrong beliefs and look at the subject matter with a view of making our great country great. Out of every family in Nigeria whether extended or immediate, you will discover that one of their ward is being represented out side the shores of this country. The question is; do we ask the goverment of that country to deny them JOBS or what? Fellow nigerians, lets us change our attitude towars work and stand up for our rights. This minority called INDIANS are not our problems. Our problems can be summarised in two ways;
1.OUR ATTITUDE: I often tell people around me that you can't change what happens to all the time but you can change the way you react to them. We need a positive attitude. Choose to be great and purse it with all vigour. Some of us go after what is minor to us and leave that which is major. How can you be great with that? I don't believe in the colour of a race but the intent of the heart is my major concern, ask yourself, when was the last time you added VALUE to this great country of ours? if the answer is on the negation, then stop raising questions like INDIANS are getting employed in this country. I am sorry to say, if you are being treated else where in other country and you don't like it then come home. Most of us complain that we are treated badly while in the first place you are an ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT in that country.
2. Secondly, our leaders are our problems. they steal money meant for the masses, loot and take to another country and even when caught, we still celebrate them like our hero with various traditional titles in our homeland. I sometimes feel like cryoing for this great country. One of our goverors was caught in london lately, today, he is celebrated in this country. So many more cases like that and some of them are still enjoying the loot. All this countries like America, take a critical look at them and you will see good governance as one of the key factors to thier growth. In Nigeria, most of our governors and their wives after two terms in office, they are representing their states at the National Assembly as a senator. My question is this, ARE THEY THE ONLY WISE PEOPLE IN THAT STATE? WHAT DO THEY WANT TO OFFER THAT THEY HAVE NOT OFFERED BEFORE NOW?.
I will go on and on for years if we want to talk abot these leaders of ours. But please tell them that the "NATIVES ARE COMMING AND WE WILL TAKE OVER" this country from them." Masterweb thanks Ogunleye for his comments. Are Indians really taking over jobs in Nigeria? Send your comments to

As a Nigerian who has lived all his life in the country, I am saying a categorical NO to this line of thought. Where are the jobs that Indians are taking over? If someone outside the country reads this type of news he or she would have a wrong opinion of the happenings in the country. Majority of Nigerians are self employed artisans who try to eke a living by engaging themselves in various occupations. However, the political and econmic atmosphere, coupled with a decay in infrastructure where electricity supply for them to engage in their trades is virtually zero have rendered all efforts by Nigerians to work a nullity. Most of them have turned to nearest paying job of engaging in transportation: by driving buses, taxis, tricycles and the worst of them all commercial motorcycles popularly called ''okada''. To grasp the real situation of things, go to the most essential employers of labour in Nigeria and count how many Indians are employed by them. By this I mean government establishments in the three tiers of government that we have in Nigeria; the Federal, State and Local governments. They are the highest employers of labour as other areas of activities have nearly wound up operation. I doubt if you would find up to a 100 Indians employed in all the local governments and state governments put together and the federal government itself. The organised private sector has virtually gone commatose. Industries have closed shops to seek better investments elsewhere, especially Ghana. Look, let's shift our attention to more pressing issue in Nigeria. The Europeans, especially the British make a terrible mistake by amalgamating hundreds of different ethnic nations who have nothing in common together thereby creating a useless behemoth called Nigeria. This is the root cause of that nation's problems. We have to visit this issue in order before genuine solution can be found to Nigeria's unending problem. Anything short of this will end up being no solution at all." Masterweb thanks Ayantayo for his comments. Are Indians really taking over jobs in Nigeria? Send your comments to

Please let us examine our work ethics before we jump into a conclusion about Indians taking over our jobs. First and foremost, Indians are hard working people. Secondly, they take their employment very seriously. Above all, they are ready to work in harmony with the success of the company on their minds. Any Nigerian seeking employment is determined to go in to do his own personal business, very proud of their employment title "The Director" Whereas an Indian director will walk into the factory to observe the progress and the production in the factory or the problems of the factory workers. I am sure, Dangote will not be crazy to equip his company with this bunch of dishonest Nigerian job seekers that will trash the management of Dangote Business empire with Doctor's leave note after securing their respective employments.

The fact is this since from the time Uthman Danfodio came to Nigeria to spread Islam. His descendant after him took over the control of Nigeria. All the Emirs in North and south of Nigeria are Fulani's. You can only become the ruler of a city or village in Nigeria if you from a royal family. But Fulanis came to Nigeria and took over everywhere. It is believed that the Fulanis came from United Arab Emirates, Yemen Abu-Dhabi and Dubai area, hence the title emir being used in Nigeria. It is known that there is no race called Arab. The so called Arabs belong to Indian RACE. When Dangote hired Indians he hired his kin's men.

Presently I work with Indians, from this vantage point I make the following observations: Nigerians I believe are to understudy the expert whether Indians or whosoever in order to take over after 2 to 4 years. The question is, is that what is obtainable? The ministry of interior need to investigate Experts are required in areas in which local competence is lacking. But most of the Expatriates don't fit this class. Less qualified persons in the name of expatriates who do not add value to our system demand locals irrespective of qualification and professional competence to address them as master. Funny! Slavery in our land. Nigerians we complain are lazy and steal, but the truth is human capital is not valued in our country. I will illustrate with myself. I am IT manger in my company but my annual take home including other benefits is far less than the cost of keeping an Indian generator Technician in my company. Note not including his salary, just his house rent, house girl salary, driver, security guard etc. Tell me if not the grace of God what would be my output on the job. No one rejects qualified expatriate staff but the issue for those who may what to investigate is that most so called expert only come to understudy Nigerians and then after six months begin to bark out orders. Most of then in fairness marvel how they got jobs ahead of their Nigerian subordinates.

It breaks my heart to see so many qualified Nigerians unemployed and wandering overseas while half baked Indians and others claim jobs that rightfully belong to Nigerians. Beleive me dear friends, if the Nigerian Immigration Service and some big ogas on top are sincere, this would never happen. Indians will come only if visas are issued and who does this? Also it is true that Indians are racist and I hate this. But if I claim that I love Nigeria, why do Nigerians laugh at me?

I don't want to be wordy, but i want to inform you that Indians have taken over IT work as well, not only in Dangote in Nigeria. Go to First Bank, UBA, FCMB, Oceanic FinBank, Fidelity just to mention few. Indians have taken over management of major Banking Applications in the name of Consultancy and they don't have training centre in Nigeria, most trainings programmes have to be scheduled in India. Not only that , most Internet Service Provided in Nigeria are Indian Companies. Go and find out. There is one called Direct-On-PC at Ilupeju, they will charge you for an epileptic Internet service on quarterly bases and the charges must be paid upfront. They won't give compensation whenever the service failed within that period. It is very terrible. They operate much like our Nigeria-breed Power Holding Company. The injuury they give unsuspected subscriber is terrible. Nobody to complain to. They have found thier ways into Nigeria Government to the point that all we are saying here may not yield serious correction. The effect of this incurssion is that our Computer Applictaion Development is highly jeopardised. I used to develop some Banking Application modules for Banks in early 80s and most of the banks were using Local Applications developed fresh University graduates who by now would have become International Consultant as well but because no Govt. was mornitoring the Indians all the zeal in us have gone far away and we ar left with mere running End Of Day /Start Of Day of Indian Banking packages, but i tell you, all that zeal to get advance way of writing Banking packages have beel lost. I don't think there is any Bank developing her own Banking Application in house any more. They prefer travelling to Indian to get one. These banks paid heavy exchange rate to send staff to Indian. You need to find out how much Big Banks like First Bank , UBA paid to keep an average indian in Nigeria just to fix a script. It is terrible. It is very painful when you see these applications that they are not as friendly as they ealier said. Go and ask all "FINONE APPLICATION" users in all those banks. It is densily populated with error messages and often Indians will be called to come and fix them . It is too easy for all these indians to come to Nigeria. Just too easy.

There is a company called UTAS Ltd is a subsidiary of Chellarams Plc wholly owned by Indian, in this company there a lot of Indians there who claimed they are engineers but they are not, in the course of interaction with some of them I discovered some of them are cleaners or road side mechanics in India (country), they know nothing about the job they employed them for, but they are made to head every department of the company. Obajana Cement Plc is a company that has a contract agreement with UTAS several Indians are brought from India to work for them. Also, another thing that annoyed most is that they claimed they are Expatriate, but they are not, having verified some of their claims.

India is a place where you can buy any form of fake document from the market, most of these people are dodgy and they have found loopholes in the Nigeria's system just as they did with the UK .It took the Uk some time to realize this and put a check on them..It's time Nigeria valued it's citizens there a lot of qualified Nigerianprofessionals ;lawyers,doctors accountants,IT consultant wasting away abroad working cleaners ,kitche porters, security,carer etc just because of the coulor of their skin and no hope for them in their own country since they are not related to a minister or there dad is not a governor.Now in the Uk no Job goes to the foreigners unless its been first advertised within the whole of europe and no europian applicant turns up for it. I do not believe any letter or article response will change anything in Nigeria's system since nobody cares about anything and the country itself is governed by bunch of ignorant opportunists but we just have to talk for complaint sake."

[ Omare Hulston Writes From Hulston, U.K. on 'Indians Taking Over Jobs in Nigeria' ] - Friday, June 19, 2009 at 7:00 am, Omare Hulston ( Email: ) writing from Hulston, U.K. wrote:- "Dear Masterweb, I was excited when I saw this caption because I have had first hand experience on this matter and I wonder with bewilderment that no Nigeria institution is addressing employment issues in Nigeria. The executive and the legislative arm of Government are doing next to nothing as far as this issue of employment policy is concern. Take for instance, I am resident in the United Kingdom, educated with experience working with NHS, national Health service in the UK. I saw a job advert posted on the web about an oil and gas company requiring a candidate which I think I am qualify, with good foreign experience. I called up the agency handling the recruitment to intimate them of my interest and experience. I was shocked when the agency asked if I am a Nigeria, I said yes, 'do you carry Nigeria's passport? he inquired I said yes' He then said 'this job is not meant for you' I asked 'why?' he said 'this job is not meant for people with Nigeria passport, those with nigeria passport are clasified as local, and they can not get the job' 'But the job is in Nigeria' I protested He hanged off the phone. This is what we see. We struggled to get employment in foreign countries, and we are still discriminated against in our country!!!! This is too unfair. Our law maker should stop stealing and start thinking about Nigerians." Masterweb thanks Hulston for his comments. Are Indians really taking over jobs in Nigeria? Send your comments to

[ Meweatu Dioka on 'Indians Taking Over Jobs in Nigeria' ] - Friday, June 19, 2009 at 5:10 am, Meweatu Dioka ( Email: ) wrote:- "The truth is that about 60% of functional industries in Nigeria today are owned by Indians. So why wouldn't they employ more Indians? If every Nigerian Governor, legislator and Minister builds a factory with the amount of money they are making in Government instaed of buying houses overseas, acquiring multiple expensive cars and landed property they would have been the largest employer of labour comparable to Indians in Nigeria. In short, Indian establishments are the highest employer of labour in Nigeria today. I need to be proven wrong by anybody." Masterweb thanks Dioka for his comments.

[ Jesse Ojobor Writes From Vienna, Austria on 'Indians Taking Over Jobs in Nigeria' ] - Friday, June 19, 2009 at 4:28 am, Jesse Ojobor ( Email: ) writing from Vienna, Austria wrote:- "It is an unfortunate development in the Nigerian Labour market and workplaces that foreigners are taking over jobs and positions that Nigerians should by rights and qualifications have. First, I will wan to say that I am not against any move to have foreigners in Nigeria workplace or foreigners having key positions, but I am against the motives by companies (foreign or national) trying to showcase their competences to do business by having a long list of foreigners whom they call "experts" among the rank and files of workers in their companies. Most of these companies are carried away and most times fooled by a foreign degree holder status, on which they thought they (foreigners) have the qualifications to perform far over and above Nigerians with similar degrees at work places. More so, these companies attach the age factor to their decision making in choosing either a Nigerian or a foreigner for a particular job, forgetting that the Nigerian educational system has been so many times been truncated with endless strikes by ASSU, NASSU or any other political or social violence, therefore resulting Nigerian youths and students to study or finish their studies at the Universities longer while their counterparts in Europe and other parts of the world are already working for 3-4 years with experiences. In the European Union, there is what they call "Third Country Nationals" meaning for any vacant job position, the first priority is given to the citizens of the country in questions, if there is non from that country qualified, it then goes to the any body from the whole EU region, if this is not still gotten, it goes to the EEA - European Economic Area citizen(s) i.e. countries in Europe not in the EU but under the EU influence, then when all these three categories are not met, that job position(s) finally goes to anybody from any region in the world. The question then is, would the job finally gets the the 3rd country national/citizen, the answer is one in a thousand cases. My opinion about it is that, the responsible ministries - Ministries of labour and productivity, works and housing, economic development, the Nigerian Immigration services and other agencies should have a central law that governs the recruitment of foreigners when their are qualified Nigerians who understand the Nigerian cultural, political and economic landscape better than foreigners with little or most times no idea. The National Assembly has a big role to play just as the EU Parliament has done in Europe. I do hope my contribution could highlight some of the gray areas in the Nigerian labour market in relations to foreigners occupying key work positions." Masterweb thanks Ojobor for his comments.

[ Gbenga Osanyintuyi on 'Indians Taking Over Jobs in Nigeria' ] - Friday, June 19, 2009 at 4:11 am, Gbenga Osanyintuyi ( Email: ) wrote:- "I am Gbenga, i read this article witten by the man okonkwo, its quite unfortunate that the government are allowing the indians who are averagely nothing in their country to take over productive sector. if you take sample of the foreigners in this country indians will account for 85% of them all, and this are people that has no respect or dignity for the this country legal system, i wonder why we have many indian as finance directors in many company in nigeria and there thousands of graduate of finances and chartered accountant doing menial roaming the street in search of job to do, and the most annoying things about this people is that most of them don't even have the basic qualification that are needed to do this jobs, they always hide under the guise that our leaders will protect them if they can have their ways, if you want to buttress this issue very well go to chi nigeria ltd, Ajao estate, orc fisheries, cormat nigeria ltd,and others, in all this places you will never see any nigerian in management positions, and the government are saying that we should not leave the country. my only concern is that the Government should not mortgage our future as the expense of what they wanted to gain in their quest for their corruption needs."

[ Chucks Chris Writes From Mumbai, India on 'Indians Taking Over Jobs in Nigeria' ] - Friday, June 19, 2009 at 2:52 am, Chucks Chris ( Email: ) writing from Mumbai, India wrote:- "It is very unforturnate that Indians are given jobs ahead of locals at home.This kind of trend only happens in Nigeria where anybody who has a curlyhair is regarded and addressed as"OYIBO". I live in mumbai {India} where Nigerians finds it very difficult to get accommodation.Indians are very racist people. There are sometimes when the police will instruct house owners and hotel operators not to rent their houses or rooms to "BLACK" men. Last year I travelled to Pune 197km from Mumbai I was,nt able to get a hotel room to pass the night because of the colour of my skin.The hotel operators all told me "Fully booked"I tried to investigate why,even though I already knew it was because of the colour of my skin.I remained inside the cab and sent the driver to ask for a room on my behalf.They told him there were vacant rooms,but upon seeing me approaching the reception their faces changed.And they immidiately told me the same world FULLY BOOKED. Yet Indians lives like kings and queens in my Beloved and only country, Nigeria.They live in the best areas in Ikoyi,V,I. During the Mumbai attack of 26\11 last year, a local t,v station here in Mumbai CNN IBN, was broadcasting unverified live news on air that Nigerians were shooting guns at cafe Leopold in Colaba area of Mumbai. For more than 30 minuites the news was on air.We were all scared of moving out of our various pidgen holes we call houses.That kind of news is not only insighting but also image tarnishing.That,s to point out just how this people hate black people and Nigerians in particular. The Nigerian embassy in New Delhi is not functional at all.It,s difficult to communicate with a Nigerian in that office except Indians who can,t speak good english.And anytime you tell them to put you through to a Nigerian official they will simply tell you that non is on desk and they will ask you to call back after 30mins.Every 30mins you will be ask to call back after 30mins. It was only when I told somebody{an Indian lady on phone that I was a barrister sent by the Government of Nigeria to investigate the plight of Nigerians in Mumbai and that I wanted to speak with a top official that she Immidiately almost ambarrassed me with many Sir"s.And she immidiately put me through to one official whose name I will not mention here. Under the pretence of being a Nigeria barrister sent by the federal government,I was able to get his attention and ask him why were they not performing their duty.Though I did,nt like the fact that I lied,but that was the only way i could get attention.three{3}days after threatening to report the non chalant attitude of the embassy officials to the government They sent a delegate to Mumbai to appeal to the police commissioner. I could go on and on with many instances, why i,m very angry about the kind of respect and privilages given to Indians in My country,Nigeria.I want to beg those responsible for the recruitment of workers to please value their citizens first before this people who hate us like shit in their country."

[ Ikembuchukwu Abugu Writes From Darfur, Sudan on 'Indians Taking Over Jobs in Nigeria' ] - Friday, June 19, 2009 at 12:10 am, Ikembuchukwu Abugu ( Email: ) writing from Darfur, Sudan wrote:- "I read the comments on Indians Taking over Nigerian jobs in your breaking news column and wish to make a few observations. It is my believe that no country in the whole wide world can claim to be self-sustaining in terms of manpower exchange and managerial expertise. Nigeria, we all know has never been a productive economy and the unemployment situation in the country had before now assumed an alarming proportion. Taking into consideration several bilateral relations we share with other countries including India, the issue of Indians taking up employment opportunities in Nigeria shouldn,t surprise any rational-mind-ed person. The truth we shouldn,t shy away from is the fact that both our present and past leaders have not really done much in areas of job creation. It is a pity that we don,t have a defined "Employment Policy" as a nation. Worse still is the fact that members of the parliament are more concerned about what goes into their pockets rather than initiate legislative policies that will be for the common good of all. Any attempt to mathematically equate the number of foreigners employed in Nigeria, be it private or public concerns, with that of Nigerians gainfully employed outside the shores of this country will surely produce a jolting statistics. More so is the fact that these foreigners may be equiped with the necessary skills needed by their employers to deliver than our own brothers. We should task our minds on what need be done to create employment avenues rather than waste our energy on juxtaposing statistics that will do us no good. Is it not a shame that the sixth highest producer of crude oil and the most populous black nation on planet earth cannot provide employment for a million people out of its one hundred and fifty million population?"

[ Clem Okonkwo on 'Indians Taking Over Jobs in Nigeria' ] - Thursday, June 18, 2009 at 2:58 am, Clem Okonkwo ( Email: ) wrote:- "Foreigners are indeed taking Nigerian jobs. Without prejudice, Nigerian Legislators must be doing something wrong if you could just imagine the number of Nigerian graduates that are passed-out each year without guarantee of any employment on their fields and the number already on the waiting list before them. Then, reconcile the number of foreign workers that are repeatedly allowed into Nigeria on daily bases to work in Nigeria despite the risks of their being kidnapped .Remember, the Nigerians that are being deported from foreign countries have not been rehabilitated yet. Why should anyone not wonder what is happening considering "419-scam" and armed-robbery as evil ?" Masterweb thanks Okonkwo for his comments. Are Indians really taking over jobs in Nigeria?
