You can also access your bank accounts via Internet banking from the bank websites.

Need some help here guys. My Nigerian phone crashed, weather was too cold for the phone.
Problem is it crashed with my Nigerian banking apps, bigger problem is, I damaged my MTN sim in the process of trying to fit it into another phone, biggest problem is I have money in Nigerian banks which I can't access because I can only activate the apps via SMS to the registered SIM which is now damaged.
I can't also do it online cos I never activated online banking when I was in Nigeria.
Any suggestions on how I can get my SIM and access to my accounts from here? I use first bank, access and diamond banks.

Get someone in Nigeria to help you get your sim reissued from MTN(forget what it's called) but you can get another SIM with the same number.

Alternatively download the app with another phone here and use the same username and password to access it if you still remember those details.

Will try getting another SIM through someone back home. I just hope they will allow it.
I've tried the app on another phone but it requires me activating with a code sent as an SMS to my now damaged SIM card.
Thanks.

I know loads of Nigerian kids doing very well in the ordinary schools, if you are lucky to have a good school near you. Why waste money on private schooling. It all depends on the student and home upbringing. Parents should spend a little bit of time with their kids and not work all the hours God sent. The school can’t train your kids for you. Gary Lineker sent his son to one of the best private schools close to £200k a year and he didn’t get one grade. He tried to blame the teachers and the school.

You are very right. It all boils down to upbringing and spending time with them. Thanks so much love.

Grammar is good as well.... although prepare to spend on good lesson that will prepare the child for 11+.. those lessons are not cheap and start those lessons early . Even state schools are ok. Just make sure the area is a bit ok and the rating is at least good ..... location matters a lot. ..... There are many good state and faith schools . Private is good as well, the curriculum is more extensive but don't kill yourself. Only go private if you can afford it . Everybody race / path in life is different .

Someone once told me a joke. The drug sellers are state school kids and the drug users are public(private) school kids .... . Either way there no escaping it .lol. but God forbids.

Many children turn out alright and great from both sides so I block such thoughts from my head . we as parents can only try our best and hope for the best

Thanks for the encouragement. To be fair, it’s my poor Nigerian mentality that’s making me look down on their government schools- they may actually be very great (definitely better than Nigerian private secondary schools I am sure). I only feel guilty because I know my folks spent to send me to the best. So I feel I should return the favour to the kids. I expected private (or public as it’s called) to be expensive, I just didn’t think it would be this expensive.

Make I born the pikin first before I worry about school cheesy

Personally even if its affordable, i don't i want to come to this world to come and live for the kids o.

Firstly, bringing them here is one thing they should be grateful for, i did't get this from my parents.

Secondly, i would ensure they live in an area with schools with outstanding ratings, and that would mean i'm gonna be paying a lot more on rent/mortgage.

Thirdly, i would also enroll them for extra lessons to make up...

Abeg, i don try, if i remember some more, i'll add to it.

I have not come to this world to live for the kids alone, make i enjoy and save for my tomorrow cos its not guaranteed these kids will sort you out when you are old ooo

Aphrodite007:


I just told hubby that maybe we should plan for private primary school, he is asking me what rubbish is that, that why spend money when the child will just go and learn to paint grin

But that private secondary school cost dey fear me o. There’s also the probability that (yes they are safe from mixing with the less ambitious kids but) they can mix with the spoilt brats that may do drugs and are just useless to their parents.

This school fees money and baby sitting money is making me consider staying on contraceptives forever grin

We will have grammar school at the back of our minds, shikena. God dey!

Your landlord by law was supposed to have given your the information about the deposit scheme used not later than 3months into the tenancy, if he has failed to do this, you can legally claim back about 2 or 3 months (not sure) rent back from him.

Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by Lamakinde(m): 12:36pm On Jan 24
You can try to get the sim through someone back home through proxy but majority of the providers don't do it anymore because of the fraud through the sim if linked to an account. Had similar case with First bank and GTB, was able to log in online to GTB but wasn't possible with First Bank. To cut the long story short, i finished all the money in GTB throughout the year while i couldn't access the First Bank with so much call and letters to my account officer. I was told i will have to come to Nigeria. I got to Nigeria in 10 months and cleared my account with the teller asking me to see the ABM in the process. I explained all the frustration throughout the year to him then my account officer called first thing next day asking if i am in the country?''JAMB QUESTION".
In my opinion, if you get the sim re-activated and sent to you then fine otherwise you might have to wait till you get to Nigeria. The risk with re-activating the sim in Nigeria is just the dangers of falling into the wrong hand because of your BVN linked to all your accounts.

This shipping agent doesn't charge by weight, you just fill up the bag with anything and he charges you £50.
