As part of its efforts to create employment and growth opportunities for Nigerians in the oil and gas industry, the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) say they have rejected the 1,494 expatriate quota applications between 2016 and 2018.
A document obtained from the Ministry of Petroleum Resources yesterday revealed that the approval was granted after the requesting companies confirmed to the NCDMB that the requested positions were strictly for highly skilled positions for which Nigerians lacked the required capacities.
According to the document, the Board also ensured that expatriate positions would be filled by Nigerians after a specified period during which Nigerians would have been groomed.
