Beneath his warm smiles and unassuming mien pulsates a brutishness, a chilling lethalness that is effectively masked with extraordinary spirit and talent.

The Buhari led APC central government on Wednesday continued its effort to foreclose the 2019 Presidential ambition of Alhaji Abubakar Atiku by revoking residence permits of expatriates of Intel and five other Nigerian companies

The revocation was announced in a statement issued in Abuja by the Public Relations Officer of the Nigeria Immigrations Service NIS, Sunday James.

According the statement,the revocation order came from its Comptroller General, Muhammad Babandede and the decision was reached after withdrawal of the operational licenses of the affected companies by the Oil and Gas Free Zones Authority.

NIS gave November 30 as the deadline for the affected staff to leave the country, saying refusal to do so, would mean getting the Ministry of Interior to forcefully deport them.

“The Comptroller General of Immigration Service, Muhammad Babandede, MFR hereby revokes the Residence Permits of the Expatriate staff of the underlisted companies, in the exercise of the powers vested on him in section 39 subsection 1 of Immigration Act 2015 and section 5, subsection 5 of the Immigration Regulations 2017 after withdrawal of the operational licenses of the under mentioned companies by the Oil and Gas Free Zones Authority.

“The affected companies are: INTELS Nig. Ltd., PRODECO International Ltd, West Africa Machinery Services Ltd., Net Global System International Ltd., MGM Logistics Solutions Ltd., ORIEAN Investment Ltd.”

Consequently, the CGI has directed that the expatriate staff of the affected companies above leave Nigeria not later than 30th November, 2017, failure of which they might be recommended to the Honourable Minister of Interior for deportation.”

It should be recalled that last month, President Muhammadu Buhari administration had through the Nigerian Ports Authority NPA cancelled the contract between her and Intels, alleging that the former vice president’s company failed to comply with the federal government’s directive on the Treasury Single Account TSA.
