Education / Re: Top 7 Most Beautiful Campuses In Nigeria by wowo2: 6:59pm On Sep 29
maverick001:

sorry, please what year was this picture taken.......

Must be a long time ago..I read or heard somewhere that the roof not shown in the picture was added early 1990s so that the Amphitheater could also be used when it rains!

I don't own the copyright to the picture though..I pilfered from the Internet cool

What's the ranking of that school in the UK?

With the right sponsorship and a little bit of luck, some 2:1 students from any of Nigeria's top 10 universities can pull that stunt in any backwater UK university undecided

And please drop all that stuff about her being best in WAEC... she is a brilliant girl no doubt... But how are we sure her ''miracle center" school had nothing to do with manipulating her results?

Just like her, I got admitted to study law as well in OAU.... And I graduated from the school as well.. . and having a CGPA of 4.53 in 1st year wasn't all that hard for students in the faculty because the courses taken then, apart from SSC102, were all out-of-faculty and pretty basic... La Cram La Pour sturvs... At the end of my 1st year in the faculty of law in OAU, my cgpa was 4.36...and I wasnt even among the top 30 in my class sad.....

Shitt started getting real in 200 level when we started taking majorly law courses... none of us made it out of the faculty with a 1st class..... And some of my class padis who had exceptionally high scores in JAMB and Post-Ume didn't exactly blaze any trails either...

Point is.. .. She is a brilliant girl who had the chance and resources to study abroad in some kinda lowball university.... If she had achieved this feat in one of the top 10 universities in the UK, then I will truly applaud her.. What she has achieved doesn't make her better than her mates who graduated from OAU with a 2:1... Some of them may have done same if they had the opportunity ...Alumni of OAU like myself will understand what I am saying smiley

Oga me , I too graduated from OAU but errmmm, this post is a bit over analytic and critical.

It is as if o Ja e lara je

It is true we don't have the full story of the history of the school etc etc...there may be tens of people like her but let us celebrate with those who celebrate... grin

Business / Re: Barclays Bank Asks Nigerians With Less Than £100,000 To Close Their Accounts by wowo2: 8:13am On Aug 03
Doesn't ring true - some banks have special accounts that require a minimum of 100,000 pounds to operate. Usually those accounts will require someone with high salary payments incoming monthly. This may just be a ploy to get Nigerians with loot money to start opening accounts with them - after all, not many U.K. Citizens can afford it.

In the U.K., the average salary a year is less than 28,000 pounds. Meaning that the ordinary U.K. Citizen finds it hard to save anything after living expenses, they even resort to borrowing.

deepwater:

you sit in your house and keep quoting your parents, oduduwa hall has nice green cushion seats, underneath the oduduwa hall is ODLT 1 and 2. So i can not be confused here. my dear stop mentioning me.

I am not trying to pick a fight..just correcting. Like I said, Oduduwa Hall is the room with orange and green cushion chairs, Amphi theatre was an open space with concrete seating slabs. ODLT 1 and 2 were never part of the design. Those were added to increase number of lecture rooms. ODLT is not the main Oduduwa hall.

wowo2:


You are wrong That was the design - all concrete. You must be confusing the Amphitheatre with the Oduduwa Hall. They are separate. My parents have been in the university since 1966 and they dont believe you

...and I have been informed that the Amphitheatre's original design was without a roof! The roof apparently was built after almost 2 decades so the Amphitheatre is useableall year round. Cushions in a facility without a roof wouldnt be a good idea,

I'm still wondering how you can use a stolen credit card to pay for something traceable to you.

I just tire for some people mentality.

Na wa 4 u o.

Your reasoning reminds me of the man whose neighbors caught his wife committing adultery. She somehow forgot to lock the main door to the house and a neighbor came visiting and just walked in to some live love movie.

When the husband arrived, all he kept asking was .."in our house? How could she be doing this in our house?". Instead of being mad at wife for being adulterous, he was lamenting about the venue. Na 4 hotel she suppose dey do am? grin

Crime / Re: Man Narrates His Horrible Experience With Policemen In Sapele (Photos) by wowo2: 7:44pm On Apr 20
Incessant Police harassment was a main reason for my leaving Nigeria. You do everything by the book but they harrass you endlessly just to extort money with made up reasons - one document today, another tomorrow. The last experience, I was forced to drive to a police station and immediately my car tyres were deflated. That was it for me - frantic checks of visa requirements to other countries started the next day!

I have stayed away from Nigeria for about a decade and while still doing everything by the book as I did in Nigeria the experience is different. I drive 50 miles at least everyday but I have never been harassed by police. I have only been stopped once - a passenger in my car forgot to use his seat belt. And wait for it...all the police guy did was make my passenger aware and warn him..didn't even ask for the legal penalty due..Nigerian police are there harassing and killing as if they are not human beings.

capsie18:
Hello House and thanks to all those that have contributed in one way or the other.

Now this is my scenario:
I applied for my Passport renewal and did my capture in London on October 20 2016 and even opted for a special delivery option to my apartment in the UK. Early this month I had to make an emergency travel to Nigeria for some issue that needed sorting so I applied for an emergency travel document which I paid £100 for due to their incompetence( not bothered about that anyway). Now I'm in Nigeria and I need to go back to the UK and I am currently stranded because I have no valid passport and I cant even apply for a new one because they said I have already captured in London. Please house who can advise me on what to do as this is really frustrating.

Thanks
Concerned Individual

Seems like one way out is to make them produce a passport for you in Nigeria. If you had your passport and loose it while in Nigeria they will have to get you one.
Travel / Re: Nigerian Passport Renewal Wait Time In The U.K Is A Joke by wowo2: 7:57pm On Feb 03
For many weeks the U.K. Nigeria house website had those that their passports are ready for collection as those told to collect on or before October 13, 2016. Today, Feb 3 2017, the date on the website has changed to Oct. 14 2016!

Hopefully they are not stamping them with a renewal date of the appointment day - otherwise a passport for 5 yrs can only be used for just over 4 years if it takes almost half a year to produce!!!

Hi, it is the same waiting period in Berlin, Germany. Had to wait five months before collecting my new passport. They told they get it direct from Abuja, that's why. Sad but true

Hmm...thanks doubletroublmum, I almost thought Uk is the only European country/member wink. So this is the likely situation in many other places. Not good at all.

If I were to be Saraki/GEJ/OBJ or Buhari's relative am sure it won't take 5 months to have someone crawl on his hands all the way from UK to Abuja and back with my freshly minted Nigerian passport.

Travel / Nigerian Passport Renewal Wait Time In The U.K Is A Joke by wowo2: 9:44am On Jan 22
It takes a wait of 4 months or even more to collect a new passport after your renewal appointment/visit to the Nigerian consulate in London.
It is unheard of in any other part of the world. You wonder what the problems are that they can not be resolved easily in this tech age. Or is the consulate basically unaccountable and there is nobody or team that can take some responsibility to resolve the issues they may have?

Of course I can hear people sarcastically proffer that you should always make sure your appointment is scheduled for at least 4 months before you need your Nigerian passport. But really, it is 2017 - do we have to accept this mediocrity and live like it is the 1980s? I may be wrong - things were probably better then- I can not confidently conjure up a worse time for Nigerians resident in UK to renew their passports.

The UK Nigerian consulate seems to be oblivious of effects this has on their citizens. I have just checked their website below, today Jan 22, 2017 and the regularly updated "High commission News" section says those that their passports are ready are those that should have collected by October 13, 2016. Surely the Nigerian consulate in the U.K. can do better.

Flat headz sef

Happened to me too in port harcourt on Aba road ..after the long meandering story by the supposed thief and contributions by the driver and passengers, they all agreed to go to a house nearby and share the money(apparently hundreds of thousands of dollars and pounds and naira etc belonging to the dead master of the thief). They then asked me if i agreed to the amount they were to collect (something like 20,000 pounds each or 2,000 pounds, the exact figure now eludes me), the first thing that crossed my mind was - it cant be true and if this is really true, where will i tell my family i got the money from and how is this not going to have a repercussion if I should get involved. I was not a prticularly religious fellow so forgive me for not going - is this what Jesus would have done? I went a bit blank and felt light headed but I heard myself saying i was not interested and will drop from the taxi at the next bus stop. The driver stopped the car right there and then and i was pushed out of the taxi on the highway! I walked all the way home afraid to take another taxi. When i got home, the first familiar face person by the gate i started telling the event that just happened, took over halfway and completed the story for me. I did not know it was a rampant thing...those who have ears let them hear. God keep us all.
Crime / Remembering Some Nigerians Directly Affected By The 9/11 Attack by wowo2: 7:12pm On Sep 11, 2016
Did some digging and could see some obvious Nigerians families affected by the World trade centre 9/11 names. This was truly an event that affected the whole world.

List is not conclusive and there may be others of Nigerian heritage affected - but it would be great we remeber about how connected the world is - and have their families in our thoughts and prayers.

Depends on how he gained his british citiznship...At the moment, he is in court and guilt has not been proven. If he obtained his citizenship by naturalization, UK oficials will be watching and once he is pronounced guilty, they will officially cancel his british citizenship. Afterall he is comfortable as a Nigerian - he was not extradited to Nigeria and went there of his own accord...
