Reps To Probe Legality Of Chinese Nationals In Nigeria For Repatriation In Response To Poor Treatment Of Nigerians In China

Members of the House of Representatives have resolved to investigate the legality of Chinese nationals living in Nigeria for possible repatriation to their country,following the poor treatment of Nigerians in China, especially those living in Guangzhou city in the Asian country.

They made the resolution on Tuesday at a resumed plenary following their return from recess which lasted about five weeks as a result of the outbreak of coronavirus in the country.

During the plenary presided over by the Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila, the lawmakers considered a motion on the “Maltreatment and Institutional Acts of Racial Discrimination against Nigerians Living in China by the Government of China”.

The lawmakers mandated the House Committees on Interior, Nigeria Content Development and Monitoring, as well as Commerce, to take up the assignment.

The committees were asked to investigate the Nigeria Immigration Service, Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), Nigerian Content and Development Monitoring Board, and any other relevant Ministry, Department or Agency (MDA), to check the validity of all immigration documents of every Chinese national in Nigeria.

The House also directed the committees to probe the expatriate quota of all the Chinese businesses in Nigeria to ascertain the number of illegal and undocumented immigrants in the country and ensure they were repatriated to China to regularise.

According to the lawmakers, this will be in collaboration with the Immigration, Nigeria Customs Service, the CAC, and relevant MDAs.

They also resolved to urge the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and all relevant MDAs to ensure that all categories of Nigerians who wish to return home were evacuated from China and quarantined upon arrival.

The lawmakers urged the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice and all relevant MDAs to provide necessary financial and other assistance to affected Nigerians who wish to seek redress in any local or international court for breach of fundamental rights, loss of property or any other actionable cause occasioned by their maltreatment or discrimination in China.

Similarly, they asked the Committees on Inter-Parliamentary Relations, Foreign Affairs, Human Rights and Diaspora, to ascertain the extent of violation of rights of Nigerians in China, as well as losses arising from such maltreatments.

The House asked the committees to further engage the Chinese Parliament appropriately to state Nigeria’s National Assembly condemnation of the discrimination against Nigerians and to ensure the cessation of such actions by its people and government.

The lawmakers with the various responsibilities were asked to report back within two weeks for further legislative action.

The House, however, sought the concurrence of the Senate on the motion.

The motion was sponsored by 10 lawmakers – Benjamin Kalu, Yusuf Buba, John Dyegh, Babajimi Benson, Tunji Olawuyi, Zakari Galadima, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, Nnoli Nnaji, Dennis Idahosa, and Tolu Shadipe.

  1. It's about time!

    Chinese are very wicked. I watched a video where some Kenyans were beaten in their own Country by their Chinese boss for coming late to work. Wickedness.

    The Kenyan Government deported them without wasting time.

  2. Nigeria should deport these Chinese to send a strong message to the China government so that Nigerians won't be treated any how and being put in harm's way.
    We might have some bad people in China but it's not all Nigerians that are bad.

  3. I pray and wish that these will be followed-up thoroughly.

    Let the committee come to Lagos Ibadan Expressway you will be shocked at the number of illegal Chinese moving around like a King.

  4. Wake up call to Nigeria leaders. Develop your own country with the abundant natural and human resources you have.
    That way, you would have little need from other countries.

    Most of the goods made in China can be made in Aba, Kano, Nnewi etc.

    Nigerians learn to go to only countries that respect human rights and practice democracy.

    1. When the country itself does not observe human rights. All na noise.

    2. 12:14 The country abuses the human rights of their own citizens, not that of foreigners.

      Call it eye service. fear of repercussions or colonial mentality.

  5. So if Nigerians weren’t treated badly in China, they wouldn’t have done this?
    This is the right thing to do ordinarily, why wait for China to maltreat your citizens before doing this?

  6. How far with the 15 Chinese doctors they invited into the country, are they helping curing the pendameic??

  7. Appearing to be doing something when they are doing nothing.
    Isn't it immigration that should do the probing?

  8. Lets see what they will come up with

  9. What is there to probe?
    Is it normal to have the non nationals who are illegally living in this country??
    Probe le.


  10. Please its long overdue. Come to 194 Ikot Ekpene road Uyo. There is a building occupied by the chinese with a very high fence that no one sees the inside of the compound. Its like they are harvesting human organs cos there is no signage to show what kind of company it is. The staff are so secretive. You only see people rushing in as if someone is watching them. No body can lay a finger on what they do. They rarely open thier gate. Any govt official reading this should please do something. Thank you.

  11. Please they should start with one wicked soul Zhang in Cway group of company, Isolo lagos. That wizard treats Nigerians like a piece of trash and i doubt his legality

  12. Such an inhuman set of creature
