AI Taffaq made the clarification on Thursday when he hosted the Chairman/CEO, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), Hon Abike Dabiri-Erewa at the UAE Embassy in Abuja.
He said just like others, he read about the ban on the social media ,stressing that the
UAE has no restrictions against any nationality.
He said though there are possibly isolated cases of individuals whose work visas were not renewed for one reason or the other, revealing that only last week UAE issued over 50 visas to Nigerians.
He noted that there are thousands of Nigerians working and living legally in the UAE.
He said he remains optimistic that Emirates Airlines would soon resume flights into Nigeria.

The NiDCOM boss urged Nigerians in the UAE to always obey the laws of their host country, be good ambassadors and excel in whatever they do.
