I am an Australian Citizen and looking to find work in Abuja,Nigeria. i work in construction on tower cranes or mobile cranes. so im trying to find a good contact to look for work over there. can anyone help.
danny, can't help you find work, but I ought to let you know the security situation in Abuja is pretty bad, and getting worse. It was already prone to terrorist attack, inter-communal unrest and high levels of crime. Now with what's going on in Mali it's worse than ever.
Our government urges us to "reconsider the need" to travel to Nigeria. They say: "Australians in Nigeria should exercise heightened vigilance and personal security awareness, particularly in and around Abuja, near Nigerian government and security institutions, international organisations, diplomatic premises, financial institutions, oil facilities and infrastructure as well as public areas such as markets, hotels, licensed premises, shopping centres, and places of worship and other areas frequented by Westerners. Security has been tightened at many public buildings in Abuja.
There is a risk of retaliatory attacks against Western interests in Nigeria following the French intervention in the conflict in Mali in January 2013."
If you do decide to go please be really careful.
