You mean they can be legally employed in the Transport sector?
Their status as refugees/leave to remainers/BINs/BEEANs under the 1951 Convention allows this?

Next ya'll be telling us they can legally operate any business in the State....

Taken from the tribune blog

#27 Nigerian Expat commented, on August 23, 2008 at 1:02 p.m.:
The Social Welfare system is being abused at the expense of Ireland’s economy.
People can argue on unfounded grounds so let's look at some facts:
A. First of all let's look at the original reasons for Nigerians coming to Ireland, when it was possible to scam the system with Irish born children; in an article incidentally written by a Nigerian:
http://www.africamigration.com/archiv...
B. Then let's then look at the Census 2006 Nigerian Fundamentals a la www.cso.ie
1. 16,300 Nigerians were living in Ireland in April 2006 – I reckon it's double.
2. Economic status: The percentage of Nigerians aged 15 or over at work in 2006 was the lowest of all immigrant groups featured at 38 per cent. One in five was working as a professional.
Among the top occupations were care assistants and attendants (11 per cent), and doctors (6 per cent).
3. Some Census 2006 quick facts:
The male/female breakdown of the 16,300 Nigerians in April 2006 was 55:45.
The average age was 26.6 years.
13 per cent of Nigerians were in the 5 to 9 year old age group.
42 per cent were single and 52 per cent were married.
And
C. lastly, let's look at the CIA factbook:
https://www.cia.gov/library/publicati...
and
D: Please review: http://www.independent.ie/opinion/col...
In conclusion:
Ever wondered why there are so many Nigerian single parents with large families whilst the spouse is back in Naija? I have met males in Dublin who work in multiglobals earning large salaries and corporate benefits back in Naija, and are out visiting their spouses and kids in Ireland, who are on benefits and claiming single status. Copulation on this holiday results in additional benefits for child benefit some months later.
There are also males in Ireland masquerading as lone parents, with wives in Nigeria - the emphasis is on the plural.
It's certainly not cheap to fly from Africa and end up in Dublin. These are not impoverished Nigerians coming to Ireland.
It's all about 'making business' eh?
Access to Western Union transfers back to Naija and the freight industry would reveal interesting cold facts.
Wondered why you are getting 419 scam emails of recent?
The majority of Nigerians are clearly here to take distinct advantage of child benefit, rental allowance, school benefit and lone parent allowance. The statistics speak for themselves.
It is time this issue was investigated as stated in an earlier posting, as it is the ongoing maintenance of handouts that is crippling this country at the expense of the Irish and EU citizens resident in Ireland. Charity begins at home [to qualified people!]

More from the tribune from Waheed Muddah, a very interesting character.

Nigerian lawyer says most asylum claims are false
John Burke
A NIGERIAN lawyer based in Dublin has described the majority of applications for asylum status in Ireland as bogus.

Lawyer Waheed Mudah said that he and his wife had not experienced any discrimination or mistreatment in their native country and said that it was the prospect of a better life that encouraged them to come to Ireland. Mudah has a degree in law from the University of Sokoto and qualified as a barrister at the Nigerian Law School in Lagos.

"It is known to you, me and most people that the majority of asylum seekers are not asylum seekers in the true sense. It's just to give you a platform to get a visa or permission to remain in the country, " Mudah said.

Mudah, who is training to practise as a solicitor in Ireland with a Tallaght firm, said that Ireland is attractive to Africans as a destination where they hope they can eventually stay and gain work. "It is true to say that [the reason Nigerians apply for asylum] is not because they are in danger at home.

They want to make a new and better life for themselves and to send something home to their families."

Mudah accepts that the Irish system encourages asylum applicants to lie about their background in their native country. "Yes, you could say that most claims for asylum are dishonest. But there is no other alternative. Everyone wants to get work, " Mudah said.

The lawyer's comments have provoked a strong reaction from Rosanna Flynn of Residents Against Racism, who described them as "sad and disappointing". She said that the group worked with "many Nigerians seeking asylum here . . .

none of whom we have found to be in any way bogus or untruthful".

Asylum seekers neither get nor need either.
The options are to refuse the application (never), grant refugee status (quite rare) or grant leave to remain (vast majority).

After 5/7 years they complete the naturalisation process and become BINs and BEEANs.

more from waheed muddah taken from the "Metro"


Ireland must not become a safe haven for Nigeria’s ‘stolen wealth’ - Nidoe EGM
Last update - Thursday, March 18, 2010, 12:05 By Chinedu Onyejelem
‘Stolen wealth’ being brought to Ireland for ‘safe keeping’ was one of the main subjects of discussion at a recent meeting of Ireland’s Nigerians in Dublin, Metro Éireann has learned.

Addressing guests at the EGM of the Nigerians In Diaspora Organisation Eur-ope’s (Nidoe) Irish branch, which took place at the Nigerian Embassy in south Dublin, Ugo Achugbu of  the Anambra State Association in Ireland said he was extremely concerned at the large scale of “corruption” in the country, and wondered what efforts were being made making to address the problem.
According to the minutes of the meeting as seen by Metro Éireann: “Achugbu said his association will propose a resolution to actively encourage Irish Government and financial institutions in the State to report and/or expose attempts at safe keeping ill-gotten wealth from Nigerians in Ireland.”
A source at the meeting told Metro Éireann that Achugbu’s proposal received much support from participants, with many eager to participate in any campaign that may be organised.
The minutes also highlighted the dismay of many Nigerians regarding the attitudes and “stupendous display of wealth” of some Nigerian government officials in Ireland.
James Onwu of Old Aguata Union Ireland is on record as encouraging Nidoe to begin a public enlightenment campaign to discourage governments and financial institutions from accepting deposits of  “ill-gotten wealth” from Africa.
The chairman of Nidoe Ireland – solicitor Waheed Mudah – welcomed this call, adding that such proceeds could be invested back in Nigeria to create “employment for a multitude of Nigerians”.
Earlier in his keynote address, Mudah urged Nigerians in Ireland not to see the work of putting Nigeria right as somebody else’s job.
“Let us come together for the benefit of our dear country Nigeria,” he said.

Arise o compatriots
I hang my head in shame to say i am a Nigerian for all the shenanigans going on in the Nigerian embassy.
Isnt it time that we address the situation through the appropriate channel? Escalate our concerns to the Department of Foreign affairs. From Time immemorial,the role of diplomatic missions in the receiving State(Ireland)is to protect the interest and welfare of the sending State(Nigeria) and of its nationals.
Egunje is generally acceptable at home as it it a culture- evryone is doing it and it is fine.
Independence day celebration is not the only reason that they are here.

Why should getting a e-passport cause this much frustration and depression?
There is no clear direction on what is to be done and oh! i hear you will also be severely purnished if you attempt to complain officially.
Lets petition the Department of foreign affairs in Nigeria with evidence of this facts and frustration. Let them CLOSE DOWN and stop wasting tax payers money.

Simple process has been turned into chaos in order to leave room for oppression.

Rats,
I trust you don't accept those stats? There's a lot more of 'em than that. There's at least 40,000 of them in North Dublin ffs.

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
