|Uk Embassy Earns £10 Million From Rejected Visas by AreaDaddy: 7:13am On Jun 24, 2008|
Dem don Chop our Dollar !!!!!
The UK government earned close to £10 million in fees paid by rejected visa applicants from Nigeria and Ghana. Figures from the UK Border Agency show that between 2006 and 2007, of the 247,765 Nigerian visa applicants 125,386 were rejected while the figures for Ghana show 49,025 applications and 27,610 rejections. With a single entry visa application typically costing £65, and a non-refundable payment having to be made when the applications is submitted, the rejected visas netted the UK government close to £10 million.

Well, the foolish Nigerian still give their hard earned money to UK.
why wont their schools also start coming here to get more students to make easy money from??
This is not new, during the colonial rule; the money they used to run the colony was generated from such colony.
It was one of the reasons they brought Lugard here; he was ruthless slave driver.
Open your Eyes African.
Wake up African

£10mil = N2.3billion
That's enough money to build 4 universities or provide air-ambulance to all Nigerians
Yet, we gladly give that to UK; who does not even like our face.
