President Muhammadu Buhari has signed an executive order prohibiting issuance of visas to foreign workers whose skills are readily available in Nigeria.

The executive order, signed on Monday in Abuja, is “to improve local content in public procurement with science, engineering and technology components”.

“The executive order is expected to promote the application of science, technology and innovation towards achieving the nation’s development goals across all sectors of the economy,” Garba Shehu, presidential spokesman, announced in a statement.

The executive order is the fifth signed by this administration.
