Travel / Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by dustydee: 11:51am On Dec 16
On opening account, seems to be quite challenging for me because we are yet to settle and proof of address is key, so in my research for better banks friendly to immigrants I stumbled on one called Monese.

Pls anyone ever heard of them or use them? Seems attractive though, easy to open from your phone et al but you need a monthly sub fees of about 5 pounds.

Oya my UK pple come answer ooo before i enter one chance
Never heard of them. Have you tried Lloyds or TSB? I have a free classic current account with TSB (since my student days as part of Lloyds group). I am nt sure if they still do that as they have been asking me to change to one which I'd pay £9.99 a month with free travel insurance and all that. I no gree grin When I am ready I might consider it.

Romance / Re: Canisius Banda Posts His Nude Photo On Facebook While Sending To Lady by dustydee: 1:58pm On Nov 30
A Zambian politician and former opposition UPND Vice President, Dr. Canisius Banda has left friends and fans in shock after a nude photo of himself was posted on his Facebook page. A lot of Zambians were shocked and suspected he was either trying to send the pics to a lady and then mistakenly posts to Facebook, or his account must have been hacked.

The photo has since been deleted

So you are not sure if he was trying to send it to a lady or not yet you concluded on the topic that he was trying to send it to a lady. What is wrong with bloggers these days?

Standing in trains is not abnormal especially during rush hour. I understand it can be uncomfortable but I doubt if it is illegal except if the NRA has a policy of "no standing".

Should a single guy due for marriage but not in any relationship be worried leaving Naija? It just hasn't happened so far in Naija and now I gotta port. This,gentlemen and ladies is my greatest worry NOW.

This means someone aged 18+ right? I believe you can't leave on your own if under 18 except for studies.

Travel / Re: Tier 2 UK Visa Enquiries by dustydee: 2:26pm On Nov 17
@OP, can you also include Tier 1 exceptional talent visa? Not many people know about the Tier 1 exceptional talent route. There are 1000 visas available annually in this category but has never been filled since it started. The government is considering increasing it to 2000 visas in the face of Brexit. It is also more flexible than Tier 2 as you will be free to work for any employer or set up your own company.

Romance / Re: She Broke My Heart Then But Now I Have Her Progress At My Reach by dustydee: 8:44am On Nov 16
My elder brother happen to be a Managing direction of a private Organisation. The Organisation conducted aptitude test and interview for the qualified applicants on Monday, but only 6 out of 25 applicants were picked (4 mens and 2 ladies). This afternoon while I was in his office, he showed me the names and the Cv of those people.
But to my greatest surprise my Ex who break my heart back then at the Polytechnics happen to be among. This lady drop me purposely because am from a poor home and follow another guy despite all the love and cares I show her.
I think this is the pay back time, Should I block her way? Cause what she did then is still fresh in my heart.
Stop being petty and focus on your English language.

something you dont see every day , Algerian agriculture in the sahara desert grin

Good job you are doing here. I worked with some Algerians for about 3 years, unfortunately I could not visit the work site (In Salah) for security reasons.
Can you please explain how these farms are cultivated? Do they bring in soil from other areas or is it the same desert sand?

That is in primary schools and not in work places

These vending machines can dispense sandwiches, hot coffee, tea etc and can also microwave dispensed snacks. Usually we're stuck with this on weekends when the restaurants in the premises are closed.

I really embarrassed myself the first time I tried to use it... Don't blame me, I'm not posh at all!
I thought there were plans to do away with these vending machines due to the health implications (unhealthy snacks).

I got this text that he was my mate in katsina state orientation camp.
And I fell for it.
My God, I just stupidly sent N50, 0000 to these scammers yesterday. It sounded so real that I can't but just to make the payment almost immediately.
All my savings is gone.
Why is this happening to me now.

God have mercy.
The person that claim to be my mate number is 0816 789 3361
And his in-law Dr Paul Lawson number is 08140514297.

I'm having sleepless night right now.

Please beware of these scammers.

I'm just learning from my own mistakes.
Why would you pay for a job?
How did you send it to them? Was it through a bank account? if so, you need to contact the bank as soon as possible.
But I am amazed that people pay for a job in Nigeria, that is so wrong and aids the scamming business.
Politics / Re: Dave Umahi Endorses Buhari For Second Term In 2019 by dustydee: 7:41am On Nov 10

Ebonyi state governor and member of Opposition peoples democratic party, PDP, Dave Umahi has endorsed president Muhammadu Buhari for second term.

Umahi said this on Thursday while addressing state house correspondents after a meeting with Buhari.

"Any first-term governor would want to go for a second term. And if what you wish yourself, you should be honest enough to wish another person the same.

Since Mr President is doing his first term and I am doing my first term, it’s my wish to re-contest and I will as well wish the president the same to re-contest."

The governor also stated that Ebonyi residents are fully prepared to receive president Buhari who will be commissioning some projects in the state. He said;

"There are quite a lot of projects that we have executed within these past two and the half years. We have three numbers of twin flyovers that are built across the African Tran Sahara Road running from Enugu to Cameroon passing through Ebonyi state, so we have to build three twin flyovers to decongest traffic on that road, each of the twin flyovers is 700-metre length.

Useless journalism. You forgot to include where he "endorsed" Buhari for 2nd term. Is "I will as well wish the president the same to re-contest" an endorsement?

You are already limiting yourself bro. Don't do this to yourself. At 38 years of age, i assume you have some work experience that would be valuable to any mba class. I have a friend with an mba from said business school of the uni of oxford, he got into that school in his mid 30s. He got straight into AFDB before graduation. He would have still been stuck in his first bank job if he limited himself with pessimistic thoughts of non admission due to age.

The only challenge I see would be getting admissions due to competition from all over the world. These are mba programs that would 1000's of applications for maybe 50 seats.
Hi salford1, I am not limiting myself. I know someoe currently in said who is about my age. I was actually looking at it from the benefit perspective given that I have other things to take care of. Also considering whether an EMBA will be a better option. But thank you for your contribution.
Travel / Re: Lies Of Nigerians Living In America by dustydee: 9:15am On Nov 01
Thanks for your comments. It’s never too late to do anything in life. You have to weigh the cost vs. the benefits of an MBA. What’s your end goal? There are Executive MBA programs out there that might work for you. The following schools have very reputable Exec MBA programs: Cornell, NYU, University of Pennsylvania etc. Someone commented about you getting a student visa, which the Executive MBA can help you with. An Executive MBA program is for older and more experienced applicants.

Good luck!!!!

Thank you.
Travel / Re: Lies Of Nigerians Living In America by dustydee: 11:01pm On Oct 31

No one cares about your age in developed countries. Your age wont stop you from getting admissions or jobs.
For some MBA programs, age can be a disadvantage even though they don't mention it.
