German-based firm rejects Nigerian nurse’s job application because there’s ‘shortage of health workers’ in Nigeria (Screenshot)



A Nigerian nurse has shared screenshot of an email showing how a foreign company rejected her job application due to the Human Resources for health crisis in Nigeria.

The lady with Twitter handle @enjoymentmadam is a nurse who lives in Hungary but is of Nigerian heritage.

The company she applied to which is based in Germany, sent her rejection mail because they thought she lives in Nigeria.

Their reason was because the World Health Organisation, WHO listed Nigeria as one of 57 countries facing shortage of health workers. Based on that, the healthcare organisation is not allowed to recruit from her country.

@enjoymentmadam shared the email with the caption;

”Is this what it means to be Nigerian?

I need a new passport please God

”For context: No, I do not live in Nigeria. This was an email from a company in Germany.”
